Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank on Thursday (4 March) addressed the unveiling of QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021, the Ministry of Education said in a statement.

He said, over the last few years the government’s continuous focus on improvement and reform in Indian higher education has resulted in significant improvement in the representation of Indian institutions in globally acclaimed and reputed rankings like QS.

These rankings and ratings have fostered healthy competition amongst Indian Institutions motivating them towards global excellence, he added.

The Union Minister said India’s higher education system plays a vital role in driving the nation’s competitiveness. He said the Higher Education sector has seen significant progress in the last few years in terms of enrolment which now stands at 37.4 million.

He also highlighted the achievements of the government in addressing the gender gap in higher education, wherein now women constitute 48.6 per cent of the total enrolment.
