 Ranking '18 has no surprises, IIT Kgp on the rise

By Rajiv Shukla
NEW DELHI :
The India Ranking 2018, announced here on April 3 by the  Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar did not spring any surprise and most institutions retained their ranking, with minor variations though.

Ranking 2018, the third edition of the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), an agency under the Ministry of Human Resource Development had an expanded scope -- Law, Medical education and Architecture have also been added in this year’s rankings.

As expected the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore bagged the top position in Overall Ranking while IIT Chennai topped in Engineering and IIM Ahmedabad in the Management category.

In the newly introduced Medical education category AIIMS, New Delhi gets the top position followed by PGI Chandigarh and then by Christian Medical College Vellore, Tamil Nadu. In the Architecture sector, IIT Khargarpur leads the way followed by IIT Roorkee -- and this will not go down well with the legacy civil engineering supporters who are accustomed to remembering the esteemed Roorkee University as the cradle of civil engineering, architecture and Hydrology.

In Law education, National Law School of India University Bengaluru is still the undisputed leader followed by a new entrant, National Law University, New Delhi pushing Nalsar Law University, Hyderabad to the third place.

Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur the first IIT set up in the country in 1951 for engineering (with emphasis on Metallurgy) has not only excelled in engineering and technology, beating IIT Roorkee in Architecture studies, but has even beaten many IIMs and legacy management institutes in business studies (7th rank in Management category). And to cap it all it scored very well in Law education (4th rank in Law category) beating National Law University Jodhpur and many others.

While Javadekar announced the India Ranking 2018 the Minister of State Human Resource Development, Dr. Satya Pal Singh released the report on the NIRF Rankings during the event.

In all 69 institutions in nine categories were given awards at the function. Mr R. Subrahmanyam, Secretary, Higher Education, Surendra Prasad, Chairman NBA; Prof. D. V. Singh, Chairman UGC; Dr Anil Sahsrabudhe, Chairperson AICTE and representatives of award winning institutions were present on the occasion.

Enumerating the details of the Ranking 2018 Secretary, Higher Education said a total of 2809 institutions participated in 9 categories. Collectively they submitted 3954 distinct profiles, some in multiple disciplines/categories. These included 301 Universities, 906 Engineering Institutions, 487 Management Institutions, 286 Pharmacy Institutions, 71 Law Institutions, 101 Medical Institutions, 59 Architecture Institutions and 1087 General Degree Colleges.

Subrahmanyam said the parameters used for Rankings 2018 were broadly similar to those used last year. However, some of the sub-parameters were tweaked for greater robustness and accuracy. In particular for evaluating Research Impact, parameters for quality of publications have been enhanced to include the number of highly cited papers, (i.e., number of papers lying in the top 25 percentile of citations) in addition to the usual parameters of publications per faculty and citations per paper.

The ranking of general Degree Colleges which was started last year, saw a much more enthusiastic participation this year, with 1087 colleges in the fray.

Jadavpur, Anna varsities excel in Ranking '17

NEW DELHI : While the results of the India Rankings 2017, released here on April 3, were strictly on the expected lines, Jadavpur University, Calcutta, and two universities from Tamil Nadu made surprise appearance on theUnion Minister for Human Resource Development Prakash Javadekar addressing reporters at the release of the “INDIA RANKING 2017”, in New Delhi on April 03, 2017. He is accompanied by the Minister of State for Human Resource Development, Dr. Mahendra Nath Pandey and the Higher Education Secretary. national scene.

The results were announced by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar here at a press conference in which most Centrally funded institutes and universities scored top positions leaving poor state universities/institution far behind. Despite all odds that the state universities face, Jadavpur University scored 12th, Anna University, Chennai, 13th and Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Coimbatore scored 16th positions respectively.

The fact that institutional ranking is directly proportional to government funding has been, once more, firmly reiterated by the India Rankings 2017 as the top place in overall ranking went to the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), the Bangalore-based PG research institute the annual receipts of which are about R900 crore. Likewise IIT Madras, the total receipts of which (year 2015-16) were R528 crore plus.

As for Jadavpur University, a state university funded by West Bengal government, its total receipts for the year 2015-16, according to its Finance Officer, were just R250 crore. As against this compare Benaras Hindu University, Varanasi (ranked two notches up at 10th), a Centrally funded university which got R1000 crore plus in 2015-16, according to its vice-chancellor Dr Girish Chandra Tripathi.

In fact if we glance through the ranking list you will find some surprises. For example Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune scored 18th position in the overall ranking but Mumbai University stands nowhere in the list of 100 rankers. Panjab University which was named top in India by the Times Higher Education during Manmohan Singh's prime ministership and had indeed received huge special grants got 54th position.

Among eminent private ventures Birla Institute of Technology & Science -Pilani and Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore are going steady at 21st and 22nd positions respectively while Manipal Academy of Higher Education-Manipal has gone down to 30th rank pushing Thapar University Patiala to 75th position.

The much publicised and propagated private universities -- Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) Bhuwaneshwar and Amity University Noida got 79th and 86th positions respectively in the overall ranking.

Unlike previous year, the institutions have been grouped in five categories : Engineering, Management, Pharmacy, Universities and Colleges. Topping them up is the Overall ranking group, picking ace institutions from all the five categories.

As expected, the Colleges too got the ranking on expected lines. The Delhi colleges, because of their close proximity with the UGC funding, bagged the top positions. Loyola College, Chennai (2nd position); Bishop Heber College Tiruchirapalli (4th) and St. Xavier`s College Calcutta (6th) indeed deserve kudos for breaking the Delhi-dominated glass ceiling. A couple of Delhi's elite colleges including St. Stephen's and Delhi School of Economics could not/did not participate in the ranking exercise and hence were not included.

State-wise

State-wise Tamil Nadu lead the list with 37 institutions. 20 university-level state/Central institutions have scored places in the Overall top 100, with three colleges coming in the top-ten list.

Seven university-level institutions from West Bengal figured among the top 100 in the Overall ranking. Jadavpur University, which stood 12th in the Overall list was fifth among Universities Category. It ranked ahead of both University of Hyderabad, which received the Visitor's Award for Best University last year from President Pranab Mukherjee, and Delhi University.

A total of eight, including University of Mysore, figured from Karnataka in the list of 100 top institutions in the Overall category. While a total of 81 engineering colleges participated from the state, just eight of them could make it to the list of top 100 engineering colleges.
