NIRF ranking 2021

Since there is already accreditation, should there be ranking too?

As per the official website: "Accreditation is a one-time (five-year) event and accredited institutions can slip in their yearly performance. Stakeholders are interested in knowing whether the institution is doing better or worse at the end of each year. Ranking is an annual report card to the nation and to the stakeholders on what has been done by the institution in the last one year, on the given performance. Very few institutions have got the accreditation, whereas ranking is open to all. It is due to this reason that across the countries, there is both accreditation and ranking."
