They all, however, failed to make the cut as their World Ranking was beyond 800 or they did not figure in the QS World University Rankings 2020.

Following private universities were also in the race: Azim Premji University, Bangalore; Ashoka University, Sonepat; KREA University, Chennai; IIHS (Indian Institute for Human Settlements), and Indian Institute of Public Health, Gandhinagar. These institutions have not been given the IoE status as they did not figure in the NIRF Rankings 2018 and 2019.

In the case of the Private Institutions proposed as Institutions of Eminence, there will be no financial support. They will, however, be entitled to more autonomy as a select category Deemed University.

Each of the ten Public Institutions selected as Institute of Eminence (IoE) will get financial assistance up to Rs. 1000 Crore over five years.
