This is an informative article which would definitely help the engineering-aspirants to choose their college for admission in future.

However, after reading this article, I woul like mention a few points:-
(i) The author could have mentioned the full form of NIRF. NIRF actually stands for National Institutional Ranking Framework. It is a methodology is a methodology adopted by the Ministry of Human Resource Development to rank all institutions of higher education in India. However the methodology has been approved only in December, 2015.
(ii) The author has basically provided the names of top ten engineering institutes of India. The students/aspirants expect more details about the particular streams which are more known in respect of every institute, campurs placement, higher studies and various other aspects.
(iii) It has been noted that the name of Delhi Technological University is missing in the list and IIT-Hydrabad, a new Insttute, has been included.

Concluding my response, I thank the author for this informative and timely article.
