India’s Top Colleges – Rank List

Well, its admission time for different courses in various colleges in India, and so is for newsmagazines to revive their marketting strategies to increase their circulation and subscription by publishing top colleges ranking. But, sometimes instead of guiding, these rankings confuse an admission-seeker.

Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), Vellore has been ranked 14th by India Today’s June 4, 2007 issue. This time the list comprises of top 25 colleges, while till last year it used to publish top 10 colleges only (June 5, 2006 issue). I was wondering on BITS Pilani, NIT Surathkal .etc. being not listed.

Similarly, June 11, 2007 issue of Outlook has ranked VIT 7th among top 50 private engineering colleges. While, last year it was ranked 43rd among top 100 colleges (June 17, 2006 issue).

Update 4 July, 2007:
Another survey done by DATAQUEST lists 117 top T-Schools in India (June 22, 2007 Issue), where VIT didn’t find any place.
Also check out June 27, 2006 issue for previous year’s ranking where they listed only top 20 colleges.

Update 10 July, 2007:
Refund fee if student leaves college: UGC

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has warned of action against universities and colleges that are admitting students to various programmes of studies long before the actual starting of academic session, collecting full fee from the admitted students and retaining their original certificates.

    But these rankings help Colleges in demanding more donation fees for admission.
    I had noticed donation for a B.Tech seat in a Bangalore based college increased upto 2 lakh after getting listed in India Today.

    rankings given by vikash needs serious correction …….how can bits mesra or colleges like vjti mumbai , mit pune get ranks above other nits?….i think he should go through the placements and admission procedure of all nits / iits to get a clear picture , as to why iits/ nits should be the leaders in T-schools.
