Former Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor Raghuram Rajan is a board member of KREA University. Among other principal varsities, the Aligarh Muslim University and Tezpur University have not been selected both as they fall behind in worldwide and countrywide scores.
The selection became taken on Friday at the 542nd UGC meeting, which considered reviews of the Empowered Expert Committee (EEC) under the chairmanship of N Gopalaswami. The committee advocated 15 public establishments and an equal quantity of personal ones for attention as Institutions of Eminence. While the scheme affords 10 public and 10 non-public establishments, the UGC tested the list of 15 public and 15 non-public establishments.
The UGC has recommended Delhi University, IIT Madras, IIT Kharagpur, the University of Hyderabad, and the Benaras Hindu University because of the IoEs most public universities.

The criterion used for determining the repute
As in step with the authorities declaration, positive factors were considered in identifying the institutions, one of them being the place in the rating. “Since the thrust of the scheme is to put together institutions for the global ratings, no current group which has not figured in any of the worldwide/countrywide ranks will be endorsed for the IoE repute,” said the declaration. “Only after exhausting the above criterion, if any slot remains vacant, consideration shall be given to ‘but to be installed (Greenfield)’ proposals,” it added.
Greenfield institutes are those that have no longer but commenced operations. These would get 3 years to set up and operationalize their group and, thereafter, the EEC will keep in mind granting them IoE repute. The UGC ranked the listing of 15 recommendations for public establishments as in line with the QS-2020 World Rankings. In case of a tie, the UGC used the QS-2019 India Rankings. In the case of the Aligarh Muslim University and Banaras Hindu University, whilst both had the identical QS World Ranking 2020, BHU scored over AMU in 2019. For personal establishments, “the UGC has ranked the list of the 15 non-public establishments endorsed by the EEC by way of taking their ranking inside the QS India or NIRF scores, and the NIRF ranking has been used as a tie-breaker. In case there is any vacant slot after considering all of the ranked institutions, the equal changed into used for ‘yet to be set up (greenfield)’ institution”, it said. In the case of personal institutions proposed as Institutions of Eminence, there will be no monetary guide. Still, they may be entitled to more autonomy as a unique category Deemed University.
For state universities
State universities like Jadavpur University and Anna University may be considered for the IoE status most effective after their respective kingdom governments trouble a reputable communique allocating their percentage of the funds (as much as 50%).
