56 Indian universities appear in the complete ranking of a total of 533 universities in the emerging economies of the world

Indian universities have achieved a good year of performance in the emerging economies of the world, with 11 universities scoring the top 100 universities in the Emerging Economics University’s ranking for The Times Higher Education (THE) 2020.

Only China has more universities than India in the top 100 universities with 30 out of 47 countries and territories included in the analysis published in London Tuesday evening.

56 Indian universities appear in the complete ranking of a total of 533 universities in the emerging economies of the world.

The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has emerged as the best-ranked institution in India, followed by the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

“For a long time, the success of Indian universities in the rankings has been a subject of debate, and they have always been seen as a lesser performer on the world stage,” says Phil Patti, director of knowledge at the university.

The Eminence Institutes Scheme of the Government of India was created in 2017 and one of its participating universities, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, was included in the Top 100 Companies for the first time, climbing a large number of 51 places from Joint Center 141 in 2019.

Amrita announced an improvement in almost all rating metrics compared to 2019, THE.

Other universities included in the Eminence institute chart showing the top 100 universities represent the biggest improvements in the ranking, with IIT Kharagpur climbing from 23 places to 32, IIT Delhi improving 28 places to join 38, while IIT Madras to 12 places joining 63a.

The Indian Institute of Technology Ropar and the Institute of Chemical Technology enter the ranking for the first time, both appearing among the top 100 companies.

The Eminence Institutes Plan for participating universities provides more government and independence funds to put them in the list of top 100 universities worldwide, including the global ranking of universities of higher education in the world over time.

This is expected to be achieved through a series of changes that include an increase in the number of students and foreign employees, the provision of online courses and the enhancement of academic cooperation with other major universities around the world.

This year is only the second time that 11 Indian institutions have occupied the first 100 places since the classification started in 2014 when fewer universities participated in the rankings.
