NIRF stands for National Institutional Ranking Framework, which was created by a Core group of Academic Experts setup by Ministry of Human Resources Department (MHRD) in the year 2015. This Core Committee identifies the broad parameters to be used for evaluating and Ranking the Higher Educational Institutions (HEI’s). The idea behind this is to give the student aspirants & parents an easy-to-understandable metric like RANK to identify the best institutions in each category (University, Engineering, Architecture, Medical, Management, Law, Pharmacy, Colleges, etc.,).
NIRF evaluates the HEI’s on 5 broad parameters as follows:
- Teaching, Learning & Resources (TLR)
- Research & Professional Practices (RPC)
- Graduation Outcomes (GO)
- Outreach & Inclusivity (OI)
- Perception (PR)
