derfIn yet another major downfall, the hallowed institutions of India in science and technology have failed once again to prove their mettle on the prestigious global platform.

In fact, both Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay and Indian Institute of Science-Bangalore have had their rankings dropped several notches down drastically on the World Reputation Rankings, 2014 conducted by Times Higher Magazine (THE).

These two hallowed institutions of science and technology in India were ranked under 200 last year. They are missing this year on the list of best 200 institutions from across the globe. In fact, no Indian education institution has made it to the World Reputation Ranking, 2014.

Both IIT-Bombay and IISc-Bangalore were ranked 192nd and 130th respectively on the World Reputation Ranking last year.

Harvard University topped the ranking this year followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology on 2nd and Stanford University on the 3rd position.

The officials of the World Reputation Ranking, 2014 also believe that the reputation of Indian institutes have dropped drastically in a couple of months. Indian Institute of Science is still the best education institution in India despite its performance on the World Reputation Ranking, 2014.

IIT-Bombay has been ranked between 210 and 220. IIT-Delhi and IIT-Kanpur have been ranked just below 250.

The World Reputation Ranking takes place annually and ranks universities keeping their global reputation in terms of education in mind.

This year’s rankings were decided after reviewing over 10,536 responses from 133 countries.
