New Delhi: President Pranab Mukherjee today expressed confidence that Indian institutions will soon find their rightful place in the international rankings for higher educational institutions.
Receiving the first copy of QS university rankings, the President said Indian educational institutions had dominated the world for about 1,800 years from the 6th century BC to 13th century AD and had been a magnet for scholars everywhere.
No university in the country features in the top 10 in Asia in the latest QS university rankings with IIT Delhi securing the best standing for an Indian institution at the 38th position on the list.
In all, 10 Indian institutions have found a place in the rankings.
“India must regain the lost glory of the past and once again become a centre for cross fertilisation of ideas from across the world,” Mukherjee said, expressing confidence that the country will sooner than later find its place in the global ranking of higher educational institutions.
