This list has been compiled from looking at past placement records, research papers published and by asking my friends (Where ever possible i.e. in most cases) about the quality of instruction and facilities, so it is believed that it is fairly accurate. Even so, there is every possibility that your views about the ranking of institutes may vastly differ from mine as this list is neither a definitive nor an exhaustive list.
we are more than ready to make additions to the list but the rankings are fixed and will not be altered. If you are dissatisfied with your college’s current ranking then kindly request you to write your own answer instead of asking me to change mine.
We have made a separate list for Tier 1.5 because at present these colleges do not match up to the standards set by Tier 1; but considering the pace at which they are growing, will do so in a few years from now. Further division of the tiers is redundant and will complicate the stratification further and hence, it hasn’t been carried out.
