No Indian universities in THE’s world top 300 list

Times Higher Education said IISc’s fall is due to a fall in its (research) citation impact score

IISc Bangalore and IIT Ropar in 301-350 grouping, IIT Indore figures in 351-400 group

Reflecting standard of education in the country, not a single Indian institution figured among the top 300 in World University Rankings 2020, compiled by UK-based Times Higher Education (THE).

While Indian universities are led by the Indian Institute of Sciences (IISc) Bangalore, its ranking dropped 50 places—from the 251-300 ranking cohort in the previous year to the 301-350 grouping.

Other than IISc, the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Ropar appeared in the same grouping, followed by IIT Indore with a rank of 351 to 400. Both second-generation IITs established after 2008-09 have leapt ahead of other top schools and older IITs including those in Mumbai and Delhi, primarily because of their high score in research citations. While IIT Ropar has got 100 in the research citation parameter, IIT Indore scored 77— much better than IISc and older IITs.

IITs in Mumbai, Delhi and Kharagpur have been placed in the 401-500 ranking bracket. It means both IIT Kharagpur and IIT Delhi have grown by 100 ranks from the previous year. After the top 200 ranks, THE puts universities in ranking groups.

Yet, none of the top Indian schools finding a space in the top 300, leave alone in the top 200, comes as a setback as Indian higher education is looking to improve its global presence and a structured programme of the Union government has shortlisted 20 universities as institutions of eminence to improve their global positions in all parameters.
