QS World University Rankings

New Delhi: Three Indian universities -- IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi and Indian Institute of Science Bangalore (IISc) -- have found a place among the top 200 in the 2020 Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) World University Rankings, which were declared in London on Wednesday.

On the other hand, Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University have found place among India's top 50 universities.

Among the total 23 Indian universities that feature in the world ranking of 1,000 universities, OP Jindal Global University is the only new entrant.

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay has emerged as the top Indian university for the second time in a row, rising from 162nd position to 152 this year. However, the IISc, which was the 2nd best Indian University last year, has dropped to the third position. IIT Delhi has clinched the second spot among the Indian universities.

According to higher education consultancy Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), IIT Bombay's ranking has jumped 10 spots due to improvement in its research performance.

Jamia Millia Islamia has ranked among 751-800 best varsities in the world and its India ranking is 28 and BRICS ranking is 125. The QS World University Rankings also says Research Output of Jamia Millia Islamia is Very High.

Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) has ranked among 801-1000 best varsities in the world and its India ranking is 33 and BRICS ranking is 138. The QS World University Rankings also says Research Output of the AMU is High.

Overall, the Indian universities have witnessed an average decline of 12 ranks due to Faculty/Student Ratio and International Student Ratio.

"While this new edition of the QS World University Rankings shows that the Indian Higher Education system is making progress in some key areas, the sector requires more substantial, sustained and strategic investments both in research and education. Experts deem the current budget inadequate for a country with incredible potential and great ambitions," said Ben Sowter, QS Research Director.

King Saudi University (KSU) Riyadh has been ranked 281 in QS World University Rankings. KSU has ranked 4th best in the Arab region.

On the other hand, King Abdul Aziz University Jeddah has ranked 186 in the world ranking and 3rd best in the Arab region.
