IISc, IIT-Delhi get compliments from Prez

President Pranab Mukherjee has extended his complements to the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, and the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi, as they recently found a place in the top 200 QS world university ranking list.

“For the first time, two Indian institutions have found place in the top 200 positions in QS rankings. The IISc Bangalore at 147th and the IIT Delhi at 179th place deserve full praise and compliments,” he said, addressing a conference of the higher educational institutions at Rashtrapati Bhavan here on Wednesday evening.

“If we provide enough funds to top 10 to 15 institutions for the next 4-5 years, I am confident that these institutions will storm into the top 100 of global academic rankings within next few years,” the President said. Mukhrejee also appreciated over 60 centrally funded institutions.
