London: India has improved its position in the world's definitive university rankings with five Indian varsities entering the top 400 list, up from three in 2012.





Panjab University made its debut in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2013-14 in the 226-250 band followed by two other new entrants - Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi and Kanpur in the 351-400 band.

The new entrants join IIT Kharagpur, which slipped from 226-250 into the 351-400 group, and IIT Roorkee, which retained its place in the 351-400 band.

"These results should be encouraging for India: while no Indian institution makes the top 200...India now has five representatives in the top 400 – a sign of growing commitment to the global rankings," said Phil Baty, editor of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.
