This year, only two IITs have successfully come to the way of top 200 universities , IIT Delhi and Bombay .

IIT Delhi in the 154th place and IIT Bombay in 174th place, with respect to the Times Higher Education List, Harvard University of United States stands as the top in the list. The report says that, US Institutions have grabbed seven places at the top 10 World's top Universities.
