National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF)

NIRF stands for National Institutional Ranking Framework, which is an initiative launched by the Ministry of Education, Government of India, to rank higher education institutions in the country. The framework outlines a methodology for ranking institutions based on various parameters, including teaching, learning, research, and innovation, among others.
The NIRF ranking is designed to help students, parents, and other stakeholders make informed decisions about choosing an educational institution based on the quality of education and other relevant factors. The ranking is also intended to encourage institutions to improve their performance and compete on a global level.
Institutions are ranked across several categories, including overall ranking, engineering, management, pharmacy, law, architecture, and others. The ranking is based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative factors, including perception surveys, objective data, and self-reported information from institutions.
The NIRF ranking is updated on an annual basis, and the latest ranking is available on the official NIRF website. The ranking is considered an important benchmark for educational institutions in India and is widely referenced by students, parents, and other stakeholders in making informed decisions about education.
