The rankings have been announced under 10 categories – overall, universities, engineering, colleges, management, pharmacy, medical, architecture, dental and law. The framework outlines a methodology to rank institutions across India. The ministry prepares the list on the basis of teaching, learning and resources, research and professional practices, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity, and perception.
