“The very rapid growth of Indian universities willing to put themselves forward for assessment in the international rankings is very impressive, showing a real appetite to compete on a global stage and to benchmark against the very best in the Asian continent and the world,” said THE’s Chief Global Affairs Officer, Phil Baty,  with reference to the 75 Indian universities participating in the survey. The number has gone up to 75 from 71 last year and 63 the year before.
