Ranking of All NITs Previous Year Trends

The various factors involved in rankings make ranking all NITs and other institutes difficult. For example, according to the NIT opening and closing ranks (one of the criteria used to rank colleges), NIT Durgapur would rank in the top 15. Similarly, NIT Silchar, by the quality of its campus, would rank within the top 10. But since ranking is not based on one single criterion, some dispute is inevitable. Therefore, the list is updated annually, based on the most important factors to candidates.
