According to report published by Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), 17 Indian universities have been included in Asian Universities Ranking 2014. Six new universities have found place this year as compared to last year.
QS conducted the survey in association with non-profit organisation The Indian Centre for Assessment & Accreditation (ICAA) in New Delhi.
IIT Delhi holds the top spot among the Indian contenders pulling clear of IIT Bombay in the 2nd spot. Apart from the IITs and DU, six other Indian institutes made an entry to the list, they are Banaras Hindu University, Panjab University, Manipal University, Amity University,Birla Institute of Technology and Science.
"The IITs have a great reputation among graduate employers, and now produce a relatively high volume of research, but it is not yet having a significant impact in terms of citations," QS head of research Ben Sowter said.
ICAA is also planning to launch India-specific rankings by 2016 in association with QS.
