Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has released NIRF India Rankings 2020 today. National Institute Ranking Framework (NIRF) was launched in 2015 and first rankings were announced in 2016. NIRF ranks Indian institutes in various categories on some pre-determined broad parameters. With each passing year, the number of institutes participating in NIRF rankings has increased and so has the categories in which institutes are ranked. In 2016, the institutes were ranked in only four categories which increased to nine in 2019. The year 2019 also witnessed the launch of first ARIIA rankings.
NIRF rankings, ranking for only Indian institutes, comes at the heels of THE World University Ranking and QS World Ranking in which Indian universities have not been able to break into the top 100 so far.
