11:05 am| MHRD had approved NIRF in the year 2015. The NIRF outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country.
11:07 am| The methodology for NIRF Rankings: A core committee set up by MHRD has drawn broad parameters for ranking. The parameters broadly cover “Teaching, Learning and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception”.
11:10 am| Broad Parameters (overall):
Teaching, Learning & Resources (TLR)
Research and Professional Practice (RP)
Graduation Outcomes (GO)
Outreach and Inclusivity (OI)
11:14 am| Under the ‘Teaching, Learning & Resources (TLR)’ parameter, an institution is ranking based on
Student Strength including Doctoral Students (SS)
Faculty-student ratio with emphasis on permanent faculty (FSR)
Combined metric for Faculty with PhD (or equivalent) and Experience (FQE)
Financial Resources and their Utilisation (FRU)
11:18 am| Under the ‘Research and Professional Practice (RP)’ parameter, institutions are ranked on the basis of:
Combined metric for Publications (PU)
Combined metric for Quality of Publications (QP)
IPR and Patents: Published and Granted (IPR)
Footprint of Projects and Professional Practice (FPPP)
11:20 am| Under the ‘Graduation Outcomes (GO)’ parameter, universities are ranking based on:
Metric for University Examinations (GUE)
Metric for Number of Ph.D. Students Graduated (GPHD)

Teaching, Learning & Resources —100 (marks) — 0.30 (weightage)
Research and Professional Practice—- 100 ——0.30
Graduation Outcomes ——- 100 ——-0.20
