  1. A huge system : India's higher education system is the third largest in the world, next to the United States and China. Accreditation for higher learning is overseen by 12 autonomous institutions established by the University Grants Commission. As of 2016, India has 799 universities, with a break up of 44 central universities, 540 state universities, 122 deemed universities, 90 private universities,
    5 institutions established and functioning under the State Act, and 75 Institutes of National Importance which include AIIMS, IITs and NIT's among others.
  2. NIRF ranking system : The Human Resource Development (HRD) ministry released the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings for higher educational institutions in India on April 3. The Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore has bagged the first position among all education institute and best university category in India.
  3. A US tradition : Historically, ‘university ranking’ is a US invention, as the first such attempt was undertaken at the beginning of the 20th century. The reasoning for undertaking rankings in the present situation is vital and valid, as things have rapidly changed. The reasons for this new situation are internal and external to higher education enterprise. In addition, globalization is a penetrating force that is affecting a growing number of domains that until now could be controlled within the institutional or national boundaries.
  4. NBA’s role : Under the NIRF rankings, institutions are ranked by the National Bureau of Accreditation (NBA) based on their teaching and learning resources, graduation outcome, perception, outreach and inclusivity and research productivity.
  5. Today’s winners are … According to the NIRF rankings for 2017, the top 10 higher education institutions in common overall rankings are: (1) Indian Institute of Science IISc), Bangalore, (2) IIT, Madras, (3) IIT, Bombay, (4) IIT, Kharagpur, (5) IIT, Delhi, (6) Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Delhi, (7) IIT, Kanpur, (8) Delhi University (DU), (9) Amrita Vishwa Vidaypeetham, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, (1) Savitribai Phule Pune University, Maharashtra.
  6. A worldwide trend : The worldwide mapping of ranking activities demonstrates that it is a growing global phenomenon in place in more than 40 countries including those in which universities are striving to ameliorate their position in the global rankings.
  7. Neutral rankings a must : Ranking of higher education institutions has assumed importance in many ways. It has become commercialized, and with it, so has the sophistication of companies and organizations that rank colleges and universities. Undoubtedly, rankings now play such a big role in shaping the opinions of current and potential students, parents, employers, and government about the quality of tertiary education institutions.
  8. Challenges for Indian higher education : Indian higher education system faces many challenges: (1) We spend too much time in assessing the problem rather than finding tangible solutions. The solutions suggested are more or less the same year after year, like  “Attitude needs to change”, “We need to get back to the basics”, “Funding needs to increase”, “Structural and design changes”, “Awareness needs to increase” and “we need more data and analysis”, (2) India’s Gross Enrollment Ratio (GER) is around 19%, which is 6% below world average, and around 50% less than countries like Australia and the US, (3) Mushrooming of low quality, money making Institutes, (4) India’s obsession with the service industry, (5) Lack of relevant opportunities and project based learning and infrastructure.
