India has been a major seat of learning for thousands of years. The country was home to both Takshashila – the first university in the world, and to the inventor of the digit 0 – Äryabhata. Albert Einstein once said, “we owe a lot to the Indians who taught us how to count, without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made”.

Today, India is known as a communication hub and has become popular with international students from all over the world. It is highly attractive due to its forward thinking, its popularity with large multinational companies, and also due to English being the common language of communication. According to Peter Drucker, “India has become a powerhouse very fast, the medical school in New Delhi is now perhaps the best in the world. The technical graduates of Indian Institute of Technology, Bangalore are as good as any in the world. Also, India has 150 million people for whom English is their main language so India is indeed becoming a knowledge center”.

Few Reasons why students Choose India for Study:
  • Low Cost
  • Quality Education
  • Financial Assistance
  • No Visa required for Nepalese students
  • Unique Courses
  • The most sought-after education destination for Nepali students
  • Huge investments in research in the past few years
  • 20 central universities, 215 state universities, 100 deemed universities and over 16,000 colleges
  • Required exposure in different career paths
Top Ranking Universities/Colleges in India

The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) was approved by the MHRD and launched by Honorable Minister of Human Resource Development on 29th September 2015.

This framework outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. The methodology draws from the overall recommendations broad understanding arrived at by a Core Committee set up by MHRD, to identify the broad parameters for ranking various universities and institutions. The parameters broadly cover “Teaching, Learning, and Resources,” “Research and Professional Practices,” “Graduation Outcomes,” “Outreach and Inclusivity,” and “Perception”.
India Rankings – 2016 based on this framework were released on 4th April 2016.
For India Rankings – 2017, the main ranking parameters remain the same. However, there are a few significant changes in a few sub-parameters. Also, this year every large institution will be given a common overall rank as well as a discipline-specific rank as applicable.
