Analysis of MHRD-Government of India NIRF B-school Ranking 2016 for top 50 management institutes, may throw more surprises for the MBA aspirants and academicians alike. Out of top 50 B-schools ranked by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, 9 MBA/PGDM B-schools are from Delhi NCR only including 1 Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Rohtak.

Honourable Minister of HRD Smt Smriti Irani unveiled the NIRF National Ranking 2016 in New Delhi on April 4, 2016 with the ranking positions awarded to 300 Universities, Engineering institutes, Management institutes and Pharmacy institutes in India in separate categories.

The Ranking of 50 B-schools across the country on the parameters adopted by MHRD has  thrown open the debate in the highly intellectual academic community and corporate sector that recruit from top B-schools in the country. Placing many top B-schools at lower rank than they were placed by most credible ranking agencies has also sent surprise waves in the student community aspiring for admission to MBA/PGDM programmes in various B-schools.

All the ranked Delhi NCR B-schools fall in ‘A’ category
The Management Institutes ranked in MHRD-NIRF National Ranking 2016 belong to the ‘A’ category as MHRD has specified “Unfortunately, data from the Category B institutions in all domains continued to exhibit major inconsistencies despite our best efforts to remove them. It was decided, therefore, that no rankings be announced for Category B institutions this year.”

Ranking: A silent guide to MBA aspirants
Transparent & Credible Rankings of B-schools by trusted agencies offer silent counseling and guidance to the MBA aspirants to choose their preferred institutes. The candidates seeking admission to various B-schools in Delhi NCR are no exception to this fact. Since the NIRF Ranking 2016 is released by none other than MHRD, an aspirant would be taking the career decision while finalizing the admission to the respective B-school on the basis of document released by Government of India.

Although the onus of consistency and authenticity of data has been placed on the forwarding B-school by MHRD, the candidates while relying on what MHRD says, may take the path shown by the B-school ranking 2016 despite all the reservations and riders the MHRD has mentioned in its report and document.

20% top B-schools from Delhi NCR
There is no doubt that Delhi NCR is the hot destination to pursue MBA education since it is an important commercial center in South Asia and third largest metropolitan area in India offering more job opportunities to MBA graduates.

The NIRF Ranking 2016 released on April 4, 2016 by Ministry of HRD for 50 management institutes reveals this fact which further strengthens the notion that doing MBA from a Delhi NCR B school is probably better than doing it from any other city.
