NIRF India Rankings 2018: IISc Bengaluru Overall Best

National Edu News

New Delhi: The Indian Institute of Science (IISC) in Bengaluru has been declared the ‘overall best institution’ in the country by the Human Resource Development Ministry’s National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF).

The premier science institute also stood first in the university category, followed by Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) and Banaras Hindu University (BHU).

NIRF, in its first rankings in 2016, had four categories — universities, engineering, management, and pharmacy. Rankings for overall and college categories were added in 2017. More than 4,000 institutions had applied for ranking evaluation. Last year 3,000 institutions participated in the India Rankings 2017.

This NIRF framework for ranking draws on the overall recommendations made by a Core Committee set up by MHRD, to identify the parameters for ranking universities and institutions in the country.
