A lot of work needs to be done by our higher education institutions to make sure that we have a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship,” he said. Rajat Agrawal, a professor at IIT Roorkee, says that the number of patents filed went up 50%, and four technologies were put into use simultaneously.
- A ranking by the Union government on December 29 ranked the IITs of Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi as the country’s most innovative institutions.
- These include state universities, state standalone technical colleges, private universities and institutions, non-technical government and private universities and institutions.
- The best government-run college was the College of Engineering Pune, while the best private and self-financed college was the Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) in Bhubaneswar.
- During the evaluation period, 18 new businesses were founded.
- During the same period, four technologies were commercialised and 50 patents were filed.
There are three Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) in Chennai, Mumbai, and Delhi, and the Union government ranked them on December 29.
ARIIA-2021 was released in several categories, including centrally funded technical institutions like IITs and NITs, state universities, state technical colleges, private universities, and private technical colleges. Non-technical government and private universities were also included in the rankings. This year, 1438 Institutes are taking part, almost double the number from the last time.
The Central University and the Institute of National Importance (Technical) category IITs took the top seven places in the top 10 list of CFTIs. Kanpur and Roorkee are two of the other IITs that made the top five list. It came in sixth place. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) was the sixth place.
As long as they were state-run universities, Panjab University and Delhi Technology University were the best two out of all of them. College of Engineering Pune in Pune was the best government-run school in the rankings. Kalinga Institute of Industrial Technology (KIIT) in Bhubaneswar was the best of the private and self-funded schools (technical) in the rankings.
Subhas Sarkar, the minister of state for education, said that the ARIIA index would most likely make Indian institutions think about how they think about research, innovation, and entrepreneurship in a new way. “A lot of work needs to be done by our higher education institutions to make sure that we have a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship,” he said.
“We are delighted to be named the most innovative institute.” IIT Madras places a lot of emphasis on students and faculty coming up with new ideas, leading to a thriving and quickly growing deep technology start-up ecosystem in the country. His school places a lot of emphasis on creating an environment that encourages innovation and entrepreneurship, said M. Subhasis Chaudhuri, Director of IIT Bombay, who spoke to the BBC. We are happy to hear that we have been recognized, but we can still do a lot to make the ecosystem better.
He is the associate dean of innovation and incubation at IIT Roorkee. Rajat Agrawal says that this year, IIT Roorkee has moved up four places to be number 5. It’s going in the right direction, he said.
He told us that 18 start-ups were started when we were evaluating them. The number of patents filed went up by 50%, and four technologies were put into use simultaneously.

ARIIA is a ranking released by the education ministry every year to show how important research and innovation are to the success of institutions. It looks at all the major universities and colleges in India and ranks them based on factors like how well they support and encourage “innovation and entrepreneurship development” for students and faculty.
The first edition of ARIIA came out in 2019. There were 496 schools competing for a place in the rankings. This year, 1,438 institutions (all IITs, NITs, IISc, and so on) took part.
The criteria used to judge the institutes include academic courses on innovation and start-up, successful start-ups that came out of the campus, investment, collaboration, and partnerships with ecosystem enablers, research outputs, and efforts to transfer and commercialize technology and ideas from the campus.
The rankings are broken down into two groups: technical and non-technical institutions. People who study technical things can go to central universities, state universities, private schools that aren’t government-aided but are still part of the government, government-aided schools, and “deemed private universities.” Under “non-technical” institutions, the two main groups are “central government” and “general.”
