In the overall category, Siksha ‘O’ Anusandhan (SOA) got 30th rank, KIIT 34th, NIT Rourkela 39th, and IIT Bhubaneswar 65th.

According to the new decision of the higher education department, institutes having higher ranking will work as mentors to institutes that have not performed well in the NIRF ranking.

The mentor institutes will guide on the focus fields for the national ranking.

According to government reports, VSSUT, Burla will work as the mentor institute for the Government College of Engineering, Kalahandi.

Similarly, IIIT Bhubaneswar will work as the mentor institute for the Government College of Engineering & Textile Technology, Berhampur (GCETTB), and IIT Bhubaneswar for Odisha University of Agriculture and Technology (OUAT).
