ANU has moved up two steps forward and ranked as 24th in the World in 2012. The University of Melbourn came in 36th, which have come down by five places from its ranking compared to the last year.
INDIA, may rightfully take pride in some of its Universities and institutes, which have become world class over the years. But, not having at least one of them among the top 200 only initiates that we still have a long way to go. The authoritative of QS Worlds University Rankings has listed IIT-Delhi as the country's best Institute, but still, at 212th place which is not the one something would go to the top list.
Other than IIT Dlehi, IIT Kanpur is at 278th place, with nine others making it to the 300 list. An another let down to India is that India is the only Country not to have a single university in the top 200. This clearly means that even though we have many brilliant students, we still have a lot of catching up to do as far as providing top-notch universities goes for.
Affectively, though one of the main reason why India lags behind is the absence of International flavor, either in its students or teaching faculty. This is not the fault of the Universities at all, as education here is still cheaper for many countries. The institutes will however, do well to improve on every count such as faculty, research facilities, job opportunities for students so that they break into the top 200, if not the best 100 or 10.
