The President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, released the India NIRF Rankings 2019 and presented the India Rankings awards to the top eight institutions in different categories at a function held in New Delhi today (April 8, 2019). He also released the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA) and presented the ARIIA awards to the top two institutions.

Speaking on the occasion, the President said that recent expansion of higher education in India has widened access and improved equity. Even so, quality remains a concern. While there are islands of excellence, both in the public and private sectors, overall standards are uneven. As our higher education infrastructure continues to grow, and as enrolment rises, it is important to lift the bar. A nuanced approach is essential to ensure that higher education not only fulfils individual aspirations, but also achieves national goals and priorities. see more

I. Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA)

Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements is an initiative of Ministry of HRD to systematically rank all major higher educational institutions and universities in India on indicators related to Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development amongst students and faculties. This was the first time that the ARIIA Rankings has been done. ARIIA ranking is established to inspire Indian institutions to reorient their mindset and build ecosystems to encourage high quality research, innovation and entrepreneurship. It focuses on quality of innovations and try to measure the real impact created by these innovations nationally and internationally. Additionally, it sets tone and direction for institutions for future development for making them globally competitive and in forefront of innovation.

ARIIA focuses on five major parameters such as; budget expenses and revenue generated through innovation and entrepreneurship development, facilitating access to entrepreneurial support system, idea to entrepreneurship, development of innovation and best in-house innovative solutions developed for institutional governance (Source: ARIIA Booklet).
