This can also act as a guideline for the Universities in India to improve its performance and focus on the areas that are in need of development. Pokhriyal said "It is indeed befitting that besides Overall ranking, category-specific rankings are done for colleges and universities and subject-specific rankings are done for Engineering, Management, Pharmacy, Architecture, Law, and Medicine. A new subject domain, i.e. “Dental” is introduced from 2020 onwards". The Ranking of Institutions at the national level introduces competitiveness amongst institutions to perform better and secure a higher rank in the international ranking.
