  1. Academic Reputation(30 percent)
  2. Employer Reputation(20 percent)
  3. Faculty-Student Ratio(20 percent)
  4. The proportion of International Students(2.5 percent)
  5. Citations per paper from Scopus database (5 percent)
  6. The proportion of International Faculty (2.5 percent)
  7. Papers per faculty (10 percent)
  8. Faculty staff with Ph.D. (10 percent)

IIT Bombay stood first with the overall score of 86.7, while IISc scored 84.7 on the above parameters. Delhi University, with an overall score of 66.1 got the 8th spot, below University of Hyderabad(69.6). Out of the top 10 spots, 7 are occupied by the IITs.

Surprisingly, Jawaharlal Nehru University does not feature on the list. This, as explained by Simona Bizzozero, Communications Director at QS (Quacquarelli Symonds), is because JNU caters primarily to students in research fields and not at graduate or postgraduate levels.

The weightage assigned to the parameters was also different as compared to that assigned while computing the World Rankings. For example, academic reputation carried 30% weightage in Indian Rankings, and 40% in the World Rankings.

The only private institution to appear in the top 20 is Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani, which is placed at the 17th spot.
