New Delhi:
Jamia Hamdard in New Delhi has been ranked as the best college in Pharmacy category whereas Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Jamia Millia Islamia are at the 11th and 12th position respectively, according to the list of the top ranking universities and colleges released by Union HRD Minister Prakash Javdekar Monday.

"India Rankings 2017" also shows Indian Institute of Science Bengaluru as the best university and Miranda House, the renowned women's college in Delhi, as the top most college of the country.

Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) is ranked second among universities while Banaras Hindu University secured the third position.

Seven IITs are among the top 10 in the overall ranking category.

Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research Bengaluru (Rank 04), Jadavpur University Kolkata (Rank 05), Anna University Chennai (Rank 06), University of Hyderabad (Rank 07), University of Delhi (Rank 08), Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Coimbatore (Rank 09) and Savitribai Phule Pune University (Rank 10) are ahead of Aligarh Muslim University and Jamia Millia Islamia.

In overall ranking, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) is at 19th position and Jamia Milliah Islamia is at 20th position.

Though Jamia Hamdard ranked the top most college in pharmacy categpry, in terms of University rank it secured the 26th position.

IIT Madras, the winner last year, has slipped to the second position but remains the best engineering college, ahead of other IITs like Kanpur and Kharagpur.

Likewise, Loyola College, Chennai and Shri Ram College, Delhi are the second and third-best colleges in India. Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad was adjudged the finest management institute.

Last year, the government rated colleges that specialise in subjects like engineering and commerce. This time around, however, it has included general colleges that offer all subjects. St Stephen's and Hindu College preferred not to be part of the comparison, though overall, the number of institutions that applied for the competition has gone up.

"We have taken various criteria to judge them like research papers, recruitment, and perception," said union minister Prakash Javdekar said while releasing the list.

More than 3,300 institutes were considered for the survey, which was first published in 2016 but didn’t include colleges because the response was poor. Prominent colleges that didn’t apply this year included Delhi’s St Stephen’s College, Hindu College, Delhi School of Economics, Ramjas College and Hansraj College, among others.

The rankings are crucial because government funding for institutions are dependent on them. Schools that do well in the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) will also be favourably viewed for greater autonomy and more international exposure, the government said.
