A new category has recently been introduced to the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings 2023 by the Ministry of Education. The fresh specialty called 'Agriculture and Allied Sectors' has been added to the list of categories consisting of universities, colleges, medical, engineering, law, dental, architecture, management, pharmacy, and overall ranking.

Further, the category of 'Architecture' has now been renamed to 'Architecture and Planning discipline'. The information was shared by the ministry on the official website of NIRF, a statement of which read, "New Discipline is added namely, Agriculture and Allied Sectors. Institutions willing to participate may register under Agriculture & Allied Sectors, Overall & Research Category. Architecture discipline is renamed as Architecture and Planning".

The registration process for NIRF 2023 has also been initiated on the official website of the institution - nirfindia.org. The last date to get registered on the portal is November 18. Though, the registration process has already been preregistered for the institutions that participated in the rankings last year.

For the unknown, the all-India NIRF rankings in the previous year were issued in 11 different categories. After the recent addition of 'Agriculture and Allied Sectors' discipline, the total number of categories stands at 12. Before that, the list only consisted of 10 categories, as MoE came up with 'Research Institution' in 2021.

The NIRF rankings evaluate participating institutes of India on grounds of resources, teaching and learning, outreach, professional practices, research, and graduation results.
