While no Indian University has been ranked among the top 100, none of them could even make it up to the top 200 slot. Indian Institute of Science (IISc) that has been ranked the highest among the institute from the country, but unfortunately its ranking has slipped from the 201-250 band to the 251-300 band. According to Indian Express, the fall in its ranking has been attributed to a drop in its research influence score and research income. The top three spots are held by two universities of United Kingdon and one by a United States Institute. While the University of Oxford has been ranked number 1, University of Cambridge follows at number 2 and California Institute of Technology shares the third spot with Stanford University.
The Editorial Director Phil Baty, Global Rankings at Times Higher Education while talking about the rankings of the Indian varsities said, “It is disappointing that India has declined in the World University Rankings amid increasing global competition,” the report added. Baty further said,”As leading universities in other Asian territories such as China, Hong Kong and Singapore are consistently rising up the rankings, in part thanks to high and sustained levels of funding, India’s flagship the Indian Institute of Science moves further away from the elite top 200.”
