NIPER fails to make in National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) ranking

The rankings announced by the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) has brought cheer to  several Pharmacy Institutions in the country. However; NIPER failed to make entry in the list, it has also raised concerns over the quality of education at NIPER. 

Academicians are using the findings of the survey to criticize the deteriorating academic atmosphere at NIPER, which is intensified by rampant corruption in the top level and is encouraged by the  bureaucracy. 

Corruption is rooted into the academic set up, which starts from the selection of director to entry level staff.Several court cases are pending and a case of  corruption has been registered by CBI against officials of National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER) CBI sources  said eight officials of the Mohali-based autonomous institute under the Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilisers, including present officiating Director, former Director and other senior officials have been named by the agency in the FIR.

Decision Reserved


Reserved decision is a legal term. After the hearing of a trial or the argument of a motion a judge might not immediately deliver a decision, but instead take time to review evidence and the law and deliver a decision at a later time, usually in a written form.

It is a more thought out decision compared to ex tempore where a judge hands down a decision of a case soon or right after a hearing.
