The HRD ministry of India has come up with 'Rankings 2016' wherein they have ranked the TOP 25 colleges for Engineering, Pharmacy, Management and The Top 25 Universities in the country.

11 of the Top 25 spots in the list are taken by IITs and 15 overall. The list is somewhat controversial as some stellar colleges are either ignored or they did not take part in the initiative. 

The process of university ranking began on October 9, 2014 when a 16 member team was constituted. Universities and colleges were given a deadline of Jan 15th, 2016 to submit the relevant data if they wished to take part in the process.

A total of 1438 engineering colleges took part in the NIRF (National Institutes Ranking Framework).

Below is the list of the Top 25 colleges as released by the government.
