    MUMBAI: In a boost to the government's drive to make the country's higher education institutions world class, a record 31 Indian institutes have found a place in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2016-17.

    Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore has climbed to the highest position till date for an Indian institute, even as a place in the top 200 list continues to elude the country. IISc now figures in the 201-250 band, up from 251-300 last time.

    While Times Higher Education (THE) has expanded the number of universities in the list to 980 from 800 last year, India has 19 institutes in the top 800, two more than last year.

    Besides IISc, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay also figure in the top 400. IIT Bombay remains in the same 351-400 band as in last year.

    "India has four new entries in the top 800," said Phil Baty, editor of Times Higher Education World University Rankings. "The country's strong performance is partly thanks to the country recognising the importance of participating in global benchmarking exercises; just last month the government launched a new funding-backed project aimed at catapulting Indian Institutes of Technology to the top of world university rankings," Baty said in a statement.

    Rohin Kapoor, director at Deloitte in India, said, "The government's focus on improving India's standing in global rankings - and even the introduction of the India-specific rankings - has started to yield results."

    Going forward, there needs to be discussions between ministries to facilitate free flow of students and faculty, he said. "Once internationalisation and globalisation happens, India's rankings will improve significantly. This is one of the critical areas where India is lagging behind," Kapoor said.


    IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur and IIT Madras figure in the 401-500 bracket; IIT Kharagpur, IIT Roorkee and Jadavpur University in the 501-600 group; and, Aligarh Muslim University, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, University of Calcutta, University of Delhi, IIT Guwahati, NIT Rourkela, Panjab University, Savitribai Phule Pune University, Sri Venkateswara University, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research and Tezpur University in the 601-800 group.

    A sign of India`s ever growing vibrant educational industry. I sincerely hope one of the Indian institutes can break the top 10 mark in the near future.
