MANUU finds a place among top 25 Central Universities second time in a Row

Hyderabad: Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) is the only language university, Indian or Foreign, to find a place in the Outlook-ICARE list of annual top-ranked central universities. It was ranked 24th from among 25 shortlisted universities based on parameters such as academic & research excellence, Industry interface & Placement, Infrastructure facility, Governance & Admissions & Diversity & Outreach, etc. The UGC lists 54 central universities in India as of June 2020. As per the information available on the University Grants Commission’s website, there are three Sanskrit, one Hindi, and one English & Foreign language Central Universities in the Country. Outlook has released the ranking recently.

Prof. S M Rahmatullah, Vice-Chancellor I/c, while congratulating the students, faculty, and the larger MANUU fraternity pointed out that this distinction increases our responsibility towards the institution and we need to work hard to further improve our position.  The success of MANUU has removed all apprehensions about the feasibility & work-ability of the Indian language in providing higher education, he added. MANUU has successfully imparted higher, technical and vocational education through Urdu medium, Prof Rahmatullah pointed out Prof Siddiqui Mohd Mahmood, Registrar I/c also expressed his satisfaction on University’s inclusion in the top 25 Central Educational universities and said the outlook ranking is a testimony to the success of the Urdu language as a medium of instruction. He reminded me that the New Education Policy also lays emphasis on the provision of education through the mother tongue.

It is pertinent to mention here that the MANUU has been accredited an ‘A’ grade by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) on continuous two occasions. Today scores of MANUU alumni can be found in various Multi-National Companies and in different government departments. It underlines the fact that Urdu-medium education is not a hindrance in finding employment and recognition.
