The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore has bagged the first position in the India Rankings 2017 for Educational Institutions, released by Union Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD) Prakash Javadekar here today.
 
IISc also occupied the first rank in the Universities category.
 
In this second edition of India Rankings, a total of 2995 institutions had participated. They included 232 Universities, 1024 Engineering Institutions, 546 Management Institutions, 318 Pharmacy Institutions and 637 General Degree Colleges. Many of these have participated in multiple disciplines, adding to a total of 3319 participants across disciplines.
 
In the top ten overall rankings, apart from IISc, apart from Jawaharlal Nehru University (6th rank) and Banaras Hindu University (10th rank), all other positions have gone to Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). In the second spot is IIT, Madras followed by IIT Bombay, IIT Kharagpur, IIT New Delhi, IIT Kanpur, IIT Guwahati and IIT, Roorkee.
 
IIT Madras has bagged the 1st Rank in Engineering followed by IIT Bombay in the second spot and IIT Kharagpur in the third place.
 
In Management category, the first rank goes to Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad with IIM, Bangalore coming second and IIM, Calcutta, third. In the fourth rank is IIM, Lucknow followed by IIM, Kozhikode in the 5th rank.
 
The 6th rank goes to IIT, New Delhi, followed by IIT, Kharagpur in the 7th rank, IIT, Roorkee in the 8th spot. The Xavier Labour Relations Institute (XLRI), Jamshedpur ranked 9 is the only private institute in the top ten. The tenth rank goes to IIM, Indore.
 
In the Universities category, IISc, Banglore is placed first followed by Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi in the 2nd rank and Banaras Hindu University ranked 3rd.
 
In the Colleges category, Miranda House, New Delhi, occupies the first rank, Loyola College, Chennai 2nd and Shri Ram College of Commerce, New Delhi 3rd.
 
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Javadekar said that this is another step in the Government’s commitment towards bringing landmark changes in the quality of education provided to students across the country. This ranking is meant to bring about fair competition among the institutions for achieving excellence in their efforts.
 
The Minister said so far no one has raised fingers on the ranking charted out by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), working under his Ministry. Until now National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and National Board of Accreditation (NBA) used to assess educational institutions. The government went in for this modification for bringing transparency and credibility.
 
Besides institutions, parents and students will also get information about the ranking and quality of a particular university, college or vocational institution. “This has led to the global scaling up of our credentials,” he added.
 
The Minister on this occasion also announced that government will extend more help to quality education institutions. It is a vital change of policy and will motivate all the institutions to perform and excel, he said.
 
Factors regarding number of research papers submitted, patents obtained and campus placement figures will also count for seeking government support. Due weightage will also be accorded to public perception, employer perception and academic perception, he said.
 
“India Rankings 2017” have ranked institutions in the disciplines/categories and have also provided a common overall rank across all disciplines for those institutes which either have more than 1000 enrolled students, or which are centrally funded.
 
The parameters used for India Rankings 2017 are broadly similar to those used last year. However, at the level of detail, some of the sub-parameters have been tweaked for a more robust system of rankings. In particular, for evaluating Research Impact, parameters for quality of publications have been enhanced to include the number of highly cited papers, in addition to the usual parameters of publications per faculty and citations per paper.

Innovations have also been made in improving the scoring metrics, where the “percentile” metric has been replaced by a more discriminating metric. All research related information, including publications, citations, highly cited papers and even patent information about institutes was collected from third party databases (from industry partners) to obtain an objective and unbiased picture.
 
For this year’s Perception inputs, a large data base of academic and industry peers and employers was deployed, in addition to getting inputs from members of general public. Finally, some provision has also been made for the scale of operations of an institute in terms of the size of its student population and graduated doctoral students, he added.
 
Mr Sharma said the data received from both institutional and third party sources were subject to extensive scrutiny for consistency and correctness by a team of experts. As per the declared time-schedule, the rankings are being announced on the first Monday of April. The Rankings List includes 100 institutions each in the Overall, University, Engineering and General College Categories, and 50 each in Management and Pharmacy Disciplines. Additional rankings in suitably bunched forms are also being provided.
