To ascertain the rankings, the NIRF outlines a methodology to rank institutions across the country. A Core Committee set up by HRD Ministry draws a methodology from the overall recommendations to identify the broad parameters needed for ranking various universities and institutions. These parameters broadly cover "teaching, learning and resources", "research and professional practices", "graduation outcomes","outreach and inclusivity", and "perception".

This year, the HRD Ministry introduced three new categories - medical, architecture and law. The existing categories include - Overall, Universities, Engineering, Colleges, Pharmacy and Management. While the categories - universities, engineering, management and pharmacy - have been in place since 2016, overall and college categories were added in 2017.
