What is Category I University?
A Category I University is one which has been accredited by NAAC with score of 3.5 or more. Furthermore, it should have got a ranking in the top 50 institutions of the NIRF for two straight years.
What is Category II University?
On the other hand, a Category II University is one which has been accredited by NAAC with score in the range of 3.01 and 3.49 and has got a ranking from 51 to 100 in the NIRF ranking for two straight years.
What is Category III University?
Category III University is a sort of university that does not come in both Category I and Category II. And with new regulation, only those individuals would get admission into the PhD course in Category-III institutions who have qualified the NET, SET or SLET examinations.
