In NIRF, Indian institutes like IIT and IIM are usually among the top rankers but when it comes to foreign rankings like Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) or Times Higher Education (THE) rankings, even the best institutes of India are lagging. Former IIT Delhi director, V Ramgopal Rao, has previously stated that institutes like IIT Delhi have “The right place” in the global top 50 but the reason it lags behind is because of a parameter called the ‘perception’ metric. But India’s NIRF Rankings will also be considered as one of the key metrics this year.

THE performance indicators are grouped into five areas – teaching (learning environment), research (volume, income and reputation), citation (research influence), international outlook (staff, students and research) and industry income (knowledge transfer). While the first three parameters account for 30% of the total weighting, the international outlook (staff, students, research) has a weight of 7.5% and industry income has a weight of 2.5%.

Perception Index in NIRF

For NIRF, out of a total of 100%, 30% of the weight is devoted to teaching, learning and resources as well as research and professional practice. While 20% of weight is given to graduation results, 10% is to access and inclusion and awareness.
