What are the AICTE norms of Student-teacher ratio for NIRF ranking?
As per AICTE Guidelines, desirable ratio is 1:10 and minimum is 1:20. AICTE gives
deficiency in case of ratio higher than 1:20.
The proposed assessment is based on variation in ratio from 1:10 to 1:20 with maximum
to proportional marks respectively.
For the NIRF ranking,
Assessment metric will be the same for Category A and Category B Institutions.
FSR = 30 × [10 × F/N)]
Here N: Total number of students studying in the institution considering all UG and
PG Programs, excluding the Ph.D program.
F1: Full time regular faculty of all UG and PG Programs in the previous year.
F2: Eminent teachers/faculty (with Ph.D) visiting the institution for at least a semester
on a full time basis can be counted (with a count of 0.5 for each such visiting faculty
for a semester) in the previous year.
F = F1 + 0.3F2
Expected ratio is 1:10 to score maximum marks.
For F/N < 1: 50, FSR will be set to zero.
