Nauni varsity not in NIRF ranking

Dr Parvinder Kaushal, Vice-Chancellor, Dr YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni, said “We will be comprehensively studying the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking parameters to see if the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) has made any changes in the five major ranking parameters, as this year no specialised Agricultural, Horticulture and Veterinary University has found place in the top 200 university list.
