Ten In­dian in­sti­tutes have made it to the top 100 uni­ver­si­ties in Asia ac­cord­ing to the Asia Univer­sity Rank­ings 2014 pub­lished by Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion. In 2013, only three In­dian in­sti­tutes were in the top 100. Pan­jab Univer­sity led the In­dian tally at 32nd place, fol­lowed by the IITKharag­pur (45) and IIT-Kan­pur (55). Ja­davpur Univer­sity (76), Ali­garh Mus­lim Univer­sity (80) and Jawa­har­lal Nehru Univer­sity (90) also made the

cut. “In­dia is the most im­proved na­tion in this year’s rank­ings by far. While it had only three top 100 in­sti­tu­tions in 2013, it now has 10, thanks to the In­dian academy’s grow­ing en­gage­ment with the rank­ings process,” said the Times Higher Ed­u­ca­tion.

The rank­ings are based on such per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors as teach­ing, re­search, knowl­edge trans­fer and in­ter­na­tional out­look that de­ter­mine each univer­sity’s strengths.
