VIT stands No. 1 among Private Institutions in ARIIA 2019


Vellore, April 09, 2019: VIT has added yet another feather to its cap by securing the First rank among private institutions in the country in the Atal Ranking of Institutions on Innovation Achievements (ARIIA 2019) awarded by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India.

VIT Chancellor Dr. G. Viswanathan received the award from Honourable President of India Mr. Ram Nath Kovind during the award ceremony and release of National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) on April 8, 2019 at New Delhi. ARIIA award was given to ten Government institutions and five private institutions.
