Education inequality in India amplified by the NIRF rankings

The best in class educational institutions in India these days provide the most excellent support for all students learn as successful as possible. There are 67 educational institutions in eight states out of 100 best educational institutions in the nation.  India has more than 760 universities, 11, 000 stand alone institutions, 39, 000 colleges and 51, 000 strong higher educational institutions at this time.  The National Institutional Ranking Framework revealed the official ranking of the vast higher education system in India by the central government. The human resource development ministry announced the overall result of the 2nd edition of NIRF.  The two major issues in the national rankings associated with the education system in India are how such ranking exercises failed to garner required assistance and amplification of the inequality in the education system of India.

NIRF rankings

In the 2017 rankings, only 2995 educational institutions participated among 39, 000 colleges, 760 universities and 11000 stand alone institutions. These members totally include only 6% of the overall pool.  Individual private promoters and the government of India have to make an informed decision for enhancing every aspect of the education system in India. There are many reasons behind the decreasing quality of education. However, some of the major reasons are lack of awareness, non-eligibility for not perfectly completing any specified number of years, fear of falling behind and the lack of proper documentation. Inequality is the most important problem and required to be solved.

The regional imbalance associated with the presence of leading educational institutions in the nation is revealed by this ranking. This is because 67 educational institutions out of 100 educational institutions are available in eight states including the national capital Delhi. Maharashtra has nine best educational institutions. However, Tamilnadu has 20 best educational institutions.  There are no quality educational institutions in the six union territories and 23 States in the nation. The complete classifications among educational institutions reveal a similar picture. Six states in the nation have 60 best educational institutions. Three states in India have remaining 40 best educational institutions.  Many specialists in the education system of India nowadays recommend Delhi, Tamilnadu, Karnataka and Maharashtra for those who seek higher education opportunities in the nation.  This is mainly because the best institutions in these States and union territory provide the most expected support for all students achieve the higher education goal without any difficulty and delay in any aspect.
