IIT, Bombay has emerged as the best ranked institute in the country, although on a global scale, the ranking is still low.
IIT, Bombay's position improved significantly from last year, moving up by 17 places, from 179 to be now ranked at 162nd spot. With an overall score of 48.2 out of 100, it scored 52.5 in academic reputation, 72.9 in employer reputation, 54.1 in citation per faculty, 43.3 in faculty student ratio, 4.4 in international faculty and 1.8 in international students, all scores out of a maximum of 100 points.
Among these six parameters under study, employer reputation is the strongest one with a global rank of 93.
“The increase in rank is a reflection of continuous improvement in all spheres of our activity," said Professor Devang Khakhar, director, IIT-B.

IIT Madras, however, remained unchanged at 264th position.
However, the most talked about point is that, like the last few years, Mumbai University failed to feature anywhere in the top and actually falling to the bottom of the list (800-1000).
The major takeaway from this year's study is Indian institutes did well when it comes to research citations per faculty.
