NIRF 2021 Placements for LPU Schools
Earlier, Indian Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan publicly announced the release of this year’s NIRF report. The National Institutional Ranking Framework has been put into place annually since September 2015 by MHRD. The nationally formulated ranking list uses five holistic classification categories to analyse each institution. These parameters include Teaching, Learning, and Resources (TLR), Research and Professional Practises (RP), Graduation Outcomes (GO), Outreach and Inclusivity (OI) and Perception (PR). Afterwards, researchers will assign aggregate scores to each university and divide them into nine separate disciplinary categories.
