It has a vast network of universities spread across the length and breadth of the country including some top institutions like AIIMS, IIT’s and NIT’s among others. The institutions like the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs), National Institute of Technology (NITs), Indian Institute of Science, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISERs), Indian Institutes of Information Technology(IIITs), Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs), International Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), University of Mumbai and Jawaharlal Nehru University are now occupying places in the world rankings of the best institutions. But despite number of IITs, IIMs, Universities, Law Schools and other institutions of excellence, none of the Indian Institutions finds a place in the first 100 of the top ranking institutions of the world.
