In the recent Indian Rankings 2018, IIT Guwahati was ranked 7th amongst the higher educational institutions of the country. The rankings were released on Tuesday by the Union Minister of Human Resource Development, Prakash Javadekar.
The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) placed the premier technology institute at seventh rank among the top engineering institutes. However, in the overall category rankings, its position slipped from last year’s eighth slot to 12th. None of the medical institutes from the northeastern region got a rank in the list of 25 in the medical category.
