No Indian Varsity In Top-10 of Asian Ranking List

New Delhi: No Indian university features among the top 10 varsities in Asia in the latest QS university rankings with IIT Delhi securing the best standing for an Indian institution at the 38th position on the list.

In all, 10 Indian institutions have found a place in the rankings, which was released here today. The first copy of the rankings was presented to President Pranab Mukherjee by a delegation from QS, ICAA, British Council, FICCI and KPMG, who have partnered in the programme.

The President had time and again regretted the presence of any Indian university on the global rankings list.

After IIT Delhi, IIT Bombay came in at the 41st position while IIT Kanpur secured the 52nd spot on the list.

National University of Singapore (NUS) topped the rankings for the first time, while Korea's KAIST rose from the sixth to second place. University of Hong Kong was at third place.

As far as Indian institutes are concerned, IIT Madras was No.53, IIT Kharagpur No.60, IIT Roorkee at No.70 and IIT Guwahati at No.95. Compared to last year and barring IIT Delhi, all of these institutes have slipped in the rankings.

Amongst traditional varsities, University of Delhi took the lead and placed at No.81, a slide of one spot from last year.

It is ranked in the top 25 in Asia by employers and in the top 40 by academics, but is handicapped on some indicators due to its large size and low levels of international faculty and student exchange.

Only the University of Calcutta ranks high in terms of students' exchange, coming second in Asia for outbound exchanges and 52nd for inbound ones. The report though mentions the growing interest in international rankings among Indian institutions.
