    How NIRF ranking came into existence?

    The Government of India and government-run higher institutions in the country were unhappy with their stand in the global rankings such as QS World University Rankings and the Times Higher Education World University Ranking.  

    In 2015, the then Education Minister, Smriti Irani, attributed the poor performance of the higher institutions in the country in global rankings to the ranking methodology used by agencies during the Winter Session of the Parliament. 

    “This is primarily because of the criteria used by these agencies for ranking, which depend a lot on the perception of a select group of persons,” she had said in Parliament.

    To counter this, India followed Chinese footsteps and decided to release its own rankings on the parameters suitable to the Indian context. However, the only difference between the rankings of both the countries is that the Shanghai rankings were international in character from the first edition itself but NIRF only ranked Indian HEIs.
