This year’s NIRF added one new domain which is agricultural and allied sectors to the existing seven domains that is engineering, medicine, dentistry, law, management, pharmacy and architecture. Also, this year every institution will be given a discipline-specific rank added to the overall ranking.

The colleges and universities were ranked as per predefined parameters which included research and professional practices, graduation outcomes, outreach and inclusivity and perception.

NIRF Ranking was launched in 2015. There was no separate ranking of law colleges in 2016 and 2017. It started in 2018 and NLSIU Bengaluru was ranked in the top position. From then, it continues to retain the top position.
