A new global ranking released on Wednesday, the Asia University Rankings 2014 published by the Times Higher Education, finds ten Indian institutes in the top 100 compared to just three last year.

This reflects on the positive progress made by Indian institutions, thanks to Indian academia’s growing engagement with the rankings process.

The rankings reveal that China is challenging Japan’s traditional supremacy in the region. Although the latter retains its crown, China has gained ground with its total rising from 15 in 2013 to 18 this year. In third place is South Korea with 14 institutions, followed by Taiwan with 13 (down from 17 last year).

Among Indian universities, the first place is taken by Panjab University. the alma mater of former PM Manmohan Singh (joint 32nd). It is closely followed by IIT Kharagpur (45th) and the IIT Kanpur (55th). Six of India’s representatives are IITs but the list also includes Jadavpur University (joint 76th), Aligarh Muslim University (80th) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (90th).

Phil Baty, editor of Times Higher Education Rankings, says, “These prestigious rankings are wonderful news for India. The country’s decision to embrace global performance has improved its representation.”
