Meanwhile, the Indian Institute of Management (Kozhikode) has climbed two spots and grabbed the position of the third-best management school in the country.

Seven IITs -- Madras, Bombay, Delhi, Kanpur, Kharagpur, Roorkee and Guwahati -- figured in the top 10 in the overall rankings. NIT-Calicut also improved its ranking from 84th in 2022 to 75th in 2023.

Kerala University is placed 47th in the overall rank list and also improved its position from 40th to 24th rank among the universities in the country. Meanwhile, CUSAT improved from 41st to 37th rank in the same category.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras retained the top spot among institutes in the country for the fifth consecutive year, while Bengaluru-based Indian Institute of Science was adjudged the best university and research institution, and All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Delhi, adjudged the best among medical colleges in the NIRF rankings.

However, the Indian institute of Space Science and Technology in Thiruvananthapuram and IIT Palakkad slipped in rankings from 43rd to 48th and 68th to 69th. Meanwhile, Sree Chitra Thirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, slipped down from 9th to 10th in ranking among medical colleges.

The rankings were announced by Union Minister of State for Education Rajkumar Ranjan Singh on Monday.

The eighth edition of the NIRF observed that faculty with doctoral qualifications are mostly concentrated in the top 100 institutions.

The ranking framework evaluates institutions on five broad generic groups of parameters of teaching, learning and resources, research and professional practice, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity and perception.
Ranks are assigned based on the total sum of marks assigned for each of these five broad groups of parameters.
