Jamia Milia Islamia secures top spot in central university rankings; JNU ranks third, AMU fourth

Jamia Milia Islamia, New Delhi, has secured the first position among all central universities in the country in rankings released by the ministry of education.

As per a report in The Times of India, Jamia topped among 40 central universities in the ‘Grading/scoring of performance of central universities’. Jamia Milia Islamia had a score of 90 percent.

Rajiv Gandhi University of Arunachal Pradesh scored 83 percent, Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), New Delhi, scored 82 percent and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) got 78 percent.

According to a report in The Quint, a statement issued by Jamia Milia mentioned that the ranking is based on a tri-party evaluation signed between the varsity, the HRD Ministry and the University Grants Commission (UGC).

“All the universities were required to sign a tripartite MoU with MHRD (ministry of education) and UGC for continuous evaluation. Jamia was the first university in 2017 to sign this MoU and present itself for performance evaluation,” the statement added.

The reports said that the rank was based on parameters like number of students who get admitted each year in UG, PG, PhD and MPhil courses. It also takes into account the range of diversity among students in terms of percentage of female students as well as students from other states and countries.

The quality of faculty, student-teacher ratio, teacher vacancy also played a part in determining the score.
