The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) in Bengaluru has secured the top position among the Indian higher education institutions in the Times' Higher Education World University Rankings 2022.
The IISc maintained its position in the 301-350 band in the rankings for third consecutive year.
Further, a record 71 Indian universities made it to the list, compared to 63 last year.
As many as 1,662 universities featured on the Times rankings list this year, compared with 1,527 last year.
Meanwhile, 35 Indian varsities, second highest total of the country, have made it to the top 1000 in the list.
IIT-Ropar (351-400 band) continues to be in second place from India as last year, while JSS Academy of Higher Education and Research has debuted on the list and is placed in the 351-400 band. IIT-Indore is at the fourth spot, ranked between 401 and 500.
It should be noted that the seven first-generation IITs including Delhi, Bombay, Kharagpur and Madras continue to stay out of the list as they took a decision last year not to participate in the global rankings, citing data discrepancy and lack of transparency.
