Quality of Higher Education

The skewed distribution of the top-ranking institutions demands immediate corrective actions.

The India Ranking 2023 report, which grades the quality of 8,686 higher education institutions spread across 13 domains, provides many interesting insights on their achievements and shortcomings. While this eighth edition of the series has substantially increased its coverage, it still has a long way to go to ensure adequate participation. In fact, the All India Survey on Higher Education, 2020–21 indicates that there are more than 50,000 higher education institutions, including 1,113 universities, 43,796 colleges, and another 11,296 stand-alone institutions.

However, though the quality report covers only around one-fifth of the higher education institutions, it is likely that most of the best performers have been included in the rankings. Since the forum provides a good opportunity to highlight their achievements, the best-performing ones will certainly crowd in first. So, it can be reasonably argued that the rankings give a fairly good idea of the best higher education institutions in different disciplines and their geographical distribution across different states and union territories.
