NIRF rankings of Indian institutes have been released, and Miranda college from Delhi has gotten the honor of best college, while IISc Bangalore has taken the spot of the best university. Prakash Javadekar, the Union Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD), was present at the Vigyan Bhavan, Delhi, where he made the announcements. Dr. Satya Pal Singh, The Minister of State for Human Resource Development also accompanied him for the function. The ranking was constituted after 4500 institutes competed for the rankings. Perhaps the most sharp drop was experienced by the JNU university, which went from being at the sixth place in the list, dropped from the top ten altogether.
IIT Madras now ranks as the best institute for engineering, and as usual, IIM Ahmadabad is still the top institute for management. Miranda College again triumphed in the college category. As for the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research, Mohali institute is the best for Pharmacy.
AIIMS was another returning champion on the list for the honor of best Medical institutes, while National Law School of India University, Bangalore is now considered best university for Law education. IIT Kharagpur is considered the best institute if students want to study architecture. These different lists have their importance, because through them, the students can easily pick out the best institutes and colleges that they want to study in, without having to go through the trouble of searching too much. These lists are also thorough and complied after great research, so they’re not just assumptions that some colleges and universities are better than others. Still, India doesn’t even rank among the top 100 universities around the world, so its obvious that improvement is still needed.
