Started in 2016, the rankings are announced by the Union Human Resources Development (HRD) Minister, however, due to the Lok Sabha elections, the President Kovind has released the list. The rankings have been announced under nine categories – overall, universities, engineering, colleges, management, pharmacy, medical, architecture and law. In 2018, about 3,954 higher education institutions were ranked under nine different parameters.


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.

Three new categories were introduced by the Ministry last year that included architecture, medical and law. In 2018, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras occupied the best engineering college while Delhi University’s Miranda House topped the college category. Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad was the top position among management institutions last year. Under the law category, NLU Bangalore bagged number 1 position followed by NLU Delhi and NLUSAR.
