DAV College 247th in NIRF
Dr Rajesh Sharma, principal, DAV Colege, said it’s a proud moment for the institution that DAV College has bagged excellent position in Punjab in and in overall ranking. It has received 247th position throughout the country. He added that 90 per cent of the parameters in NIRF are completely objective and fact-based, while only 10 per cent is based on the subjective parameters by academic peers and employers. Acknowledging that Indian institutions also struggle on the “internationalisation” parameter in global rankings, he expressed confidence that the NIRF ranking will reach a point where international institutions will want to be included in the Indian ranking system rather than vice versa. Overall, 3,771 institutions registered in the ranking framework this year, which is a 20 per cent increase in comparison to last year. All parameters are normalised to keep them size- and age-independent so as to ensure that larger and older institutions do not get any undue advantage.
