IITs fail to make it to Worlds Top 500 list
If the Academic Ranking of World Universities is to be believed, the Indian institute of Technology, one of the most prestigious institutions, may not be great anymore. Knowwhy.Mail Today

Indian Institute of Technology, Jodhpur (IIT-J) The Indian Institute of Technology ( IITs), widely regarded as one of a handful of Indianinstitutions that are among the best in the world, may not be all that great any more.That is, if the Academic Ranking of World Universities ( ARWU) is to be believed.For the first time in nine years, not a single IIT figures in the ranking of the top 500universities in the world.The sole representative of the IITs, IIT Kharagpur, which has seen its ranking fallsteadily over the past few years, has been dropped altogether from the 2011 list releasedlast week.This leaves just one Indian university on the long list - Indian Institute of Science (IISc).This, certainly, is the kind of news the IITs could do without right now - especially withJairam Ramesh, himself an alumnus, recently saying the standard at the IITs had dropped,and the recent debate on the lack of research being produced by these premierinstitutions." We are aware that our institute no longer figures on the ( ranking) list.We are trying to explore why this has happened," said B. K. Mathur, dean of planningand coordination at IIT Kharagpur, not wishing to comment further on the issue.
