Times Higher Education (THE) ranking 2018 India: The list has been released and the country does not figure very well in it. Aside from IISC Bangalore, there was very little Indian presence in the THE ranking 2018 list. The notable part is that the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi did not make it to even the top 50 even as IIT Bombay came in just outside the top 25. Another institution that hogged the spotlight for not being even listed was the University of Mumbai.
