While IISc was the best Indian institution last year, it fell 70 positions from 155th rank to 225th ranking this year. It now stands as the third-highest-ranked Indian institution. With 45 Indian universities making it to the rankings, up from 41 last year, India is the seventh most-represented country globally and the third in Asia. However, India is one university less in the top 200, compared to last year. Overall 13 Indian universities have slipped down in the QS Rankings. In the QS World University Rankings 2024, IIT Delhi comes in second at 197th position, slipping down from 174th position last year. Some other reputed universities also faced the same feat. While IIT Kanpur fell from 264th to 278th ranking, IIT Madras fell from 250th rank to 285th rank.
