Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: Two of Delhi’s top colleges, St Stephen’s and Lady Shri Ram (LSR) College, refuse to part with information regarding their faculty, a mandatory parameter to assess the performance of colleges in the national ranking system. National Institution Ranking Framework (NIRF) will be announced in April this year by the government.

A total of 4,734 institutes are participating in the exercise this year, 1,525 more than last year.Rankings are given in eight categories: overall, engineering, management, architecture, law, medical, pharmacy, and general colleges. Principals of both St Stephen’s and the LSR College didn’t respond to calls and text messages seeking comment. The ministry prepares the list based on a range of parameters such as teaching and learning resources, quality of research, and outcomes that judge the employ-ability of graduates.
