The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) launched in 2015 under MHRD outlines a methodology for ranking educational institutions across India. They release yearly rankings based on several parameters, one of which is 'Facilities for Physically Challenged Students' which asks the following questions:

  1. Does your institution have Lifts/Ramps?
  2. Does your institution have provision for walking aids, including wheelchairs and transportation from one building to another for handicapped students?
  3. Does your institution have specially designed toilets for handicapped students?

This information isn't immediately accessible to the students as well as the administration currently. Data submitted by IIT Kharagpur for 2017 can be found here: https://nirfcdn.azureedge.net/rankingpdf2017/IR17-ENGG-2-18630.pdf
