– globalbihari bureau

New Delhi: The Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) is the number one higher educational institution in the country as per “India Rankings 2020” done by National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), which is being used for past five years for ranking of institutions of higher education in different categories and domains of knowledge.

The list of top ranked higher educational institutions was released by Union Human Resources Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’  here on Thursday.

Besides Overall ranking, category-specific rankings are done for colleges and universities and subject-specific rankings are done for Engineering, Management, Pharmacy, Architecture, Law and Medicine. A new subject domain, i.e. “Dental” was introduced from 2020 onwards.

IIT Madras has retained its 1st position in overall ranking as well as in engineering ranking. Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru has topped the University list while Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad has topped in Management category. The All India Institute of Medical Sciences has got top ranking in Medical category for third consecutive year. Among colleges, Miranda House, Delhi too has retained its number one position for third consecutive year. For the first time dental institutions have been included in India Rankings and under Dental category and Maulana Azad Institute of Dental Sciences, Delhi has secured first position in this category.

This is the fifth consecutive edition of India Rankings of the institutions of higher education in India. Pokhriyal said rankings help universities to improve their performance on various ranking parameters and identify gaps in research and areas of improvement.

The ranking framework evaluates institutions on five broad generic groups of parameters, i.e. Teaching, Learning and Resources (TLR)Research and Professional Practice (RP)Graduation Outcomes (GO)Outreach and Inclusivity (OI) and Perception (PR). Ranks are assigned based on total sum of marks assigned for each of these five broad groups of parameters.

Country-specific parameters relevant to the Indian situation such as regional diversity, outreach, gender equity and inclusion of disadvantaged sections of the society are included in the ranking methodology. All parameters and sub-parameters are duly normalized so keep them “size-independent” and “age-independent” so that large and old institutions do not get undue advantages.

Besides, sourcing data on various parameters from applicant institutions, third party sources of data are also used, wherever possible. Scopus (Elsevier Science) and Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics) are used for retrieving publications and citations data. Derwent Innovation is used for retrieving data on patents.

Data retrieved from these sources was shared with the institutions for transparency with a provision to give their inputs.

A total number of 3771 unique institutions offered themselves for ranking under “Overall”, category-specific and / or domain-specific rankings for India Rankings 2020. In all, 5805 applications for ranking were made by these 3771 unique applicant institutions under various categories / domains, which include 294 Universities, 1071 Engineering Institutions, 630 Management Institutions, 334 Pharmacy Institutions, 97 Law Institutions, 118 Medical Institutions, 48 Architecture Institutions and 1659 General Degree Colleges.
