Pradhan said that officials were working towards making India's education ecosystem more vibrant and making youth future ready. A robust and objective framework for assessment, accreditation and ranking would play a major role in enhancing quality in the higher education ecosystem, he added.

The Minister further said that the country was moving towards creating a knowledge-based economy which was innovation-led and technology-driven. Higher educational institutions have to play a key role in making India a leading global innovation and digital economy and making quality education affordable and accessible for the bottom of the pyramid population, he added.

The Minister also highlighted following points:

Accreditation and assessment shall be mandatory and every Higher Education Institution would need to be accredited. Self-declaration and transparency would be basis of assessment and accreditation.

All the institutions would also be part of NIRF ranking system.

By next year, the institutional accreditation presently being done by NAAC and programme accreditation, presently being done by NBA, would be unified. Ranking on Innovation done earlier by AICTE would henceforth be integrated with NIRF. All institutions would be a part of the combined system of assessment, accreditation and rankings. Such a system would be transparent and objective.

From next year NIRF ranking categories would include Innovation and Entrepreneurship. NIRF rankings categories could be increased as per the needs.

There was already work going on rankings of ITIs and Polytechnics.

Soon there would be a system where each school would also be accredited. The Centre would take state governments on board. Parents would know the standing of school where the child was being admitted.

Only those Universities/Colleges which have NAAC grading or NIRF ranking will be eligible for inclusion in the list maintained by the UGC under Section 12 B of the UGC Act, 1956 for receiving financial assistance.

The Government accreditation and rankings system would become international and invite foreign institutions to be a part of it.

CUET was a step towards quality and standardization. Any remaining challenge in CUET would be resolved at the earliest.

Several Private Higher Education Institutions apply some affirmative action or reservation policy. All private HEIs shall move in that direction to ensure inclusive education and comply with NEP 2020 principles.

Institutions shall become multi-disciplinary. IITs coming in top 10 in management category showed that market also desires multi-disciplinary education and institutions.

Five broad categories of parameters and weightage would be introduced.
