Ranking of Central universities will now be carried out using a national ranking system framework. A primary draft for this has already been prepared. “Delhi University hosted a conclave of vice-chancellors yesterday for developing a framework for a National Ranking System and a draft containing the ranking parameters has been prepared,” Media coordinator and Joint Dean of Students’ Welfare, Delhi University, Malay Neerav, said.
The conclave saw exchange of ideas and a broad consensus was reached on six parameters for the National Ranking System. According to a DU official, “These include academic reputation, research development and innovation, training and placement, internationalisation, per capita academic performance and outreach or geographical reach of universities.”
The work on the framework has been started following a directive by the Ministry of HRD.
