No Indian University in World's Top 200

A list of 980 Top universities from 70 countries has been issued by the Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings 2016 and no Indian varsity has featured in the Top 200. Overall 31 Indian institutions, including 14 new names, featured in the list though.

After rating the first 200 Varsities, Times Higher Education has not assigned a particular ranking but sorted the universities into groups of 50. IISc leads the pack of Indian universities by claiming a place in the Top 201-250 Band. It's the best ranking ever achieved by IISc, which found a place in the 251-300 Group of best universities last year.

Second among the Indian institutions is IIT-Bombay, which has featured in the top 351-400 band. IIT Delhi, IIT Kanpur and IIT Madras featured in the 401-500 Bracket.  Even though Indian institutions continued their poor performance in the global education arena, the agency praised the government for its recent efforts to improve the rankings of Indian varsities.

University of Oxford has been ranked the world's top university, replacing California Institute of Technology (Caltech). In the Top 10, seven are from the US, two are from the UK and one is from Switzerland. In Asia, National University of Singapore was the top placed institution with a global rank of 24.
