VIT named most innovative private institution
Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) has secured the top spot among private institutions in the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA 2019) awarded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
In order to promote innovations in Higher Education Institutions (HEI), MHRD came out with ARIIA. The process of getting data from institutions, considering them and finalising the institutions took several months and the ranks were declared by President Ram Nath Kovind on Monday. The ranks were declared in two categories — government-funded institutions and private-funded institutions.
ARIIA is an initiative to systematically rank all major higher educational institutions and universities in India on indicators related to “Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development” amongst students and faculties. VIT Chancellor G. Viswanathan received the award from Mr. Kovind during the presentation ceremony during the release of the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) on Monday.
