New Delhi: The government will roll out on Tuesday an India-specific ranking framework covering higher educational institutes, in an answer to global ranking agencies where Indian universities and institutes including the IITs have never been able to make the cut.

The ranking framework will be across disciplines which takes into account the perception of an institute, outreach, research activity and inclusivity through reservations.

It will be released by HRD Minister Smriti Irani following marathon meetings of a core committee headed by the HRD Ministry higher education Secretary.

The parameters which would be used for ranking are “teaching learning and resources, research, consulting and collaborative performance, graduation outcome, outreach and inclusivity (through reservations) and perception” said an official note.
