New Delhi: IIHMR University, Jaipur, has been in the top 1% management institute in India, reveals the Union Minister of Human Resource Development (HRD) Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank while announcing NIRF (National Institute Ranking Framework) in New Delhi, Today. The rankings for India's best universities and institutions were to be released in April but got delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The university got 65th Rank in the category of management institutes, which was 72nd last year. The number of Indian institutes registered for the NIRF ranking this year has increased from 20 percent as compared to last year, where 6300 management institutes applied for this ranking in 2020. Apart from IIHMR University, the only institution which could make in top 75 in the management category from Rajasthan is IIM, Udaipur. Many institutions from Rajasthan who were there in last years ranking, could not make it to the top 75 list of institutions this year.

This is the true acknowledgment for the sincere efforts of team IIHMR University who are continuously working even during this pandemic.
