From 2017 to 2022, its research output grew by an impressive 54%, making it the world's fourth largest research producer.

Quacquarelli says the rise of India's higher education on the global stage has undoubtedly been helped by visionary policies like the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 led by Prime Minister Modi.

“I had the honor of meeting the Prime Minister to discuss global higher education trends. During our engaging conversation, it was clear that PM Modi has a passionate commitment to revolutionizing Indian education, which is reflected in the ambitious goals of the NEP,” Nunzio Quacquarelli, Chairman, Quacquarelli Symonds said in his post.

QS's latest subject rankings show that these goals are beginning to manifest in the significant presence and improved performance of Indian universities. The Quacquarelli analysis covered more than 1,500 universities in 96 countries, demonstrating excellence across 55 academic subjects and five faculty areas.

India now leads 44 out of 55 QS subject rankings. Exceptional performance was noted in computer science, chemistry, biological sciences, business studies and physics, among others.

Institutes of Eminence (IoE) contributed 47 of the 69 Indian university positions in the top 100 in any subject ranking. Across Asia, India is now second only to China in QS subject rankings.

“Congratulations to all the universities, their administrators, faculty members and students who have worked tirelessly to achieve these remarkable results. The future of Indian higher education is bright, and it is a privilege to watch this change unfold,” Nunzio Quacquarelli wrote in his post.

With India's rise in global education rankings, the Modi government has introduced the New Education Policy (NEP) 2023, signaling a significant change in the educational structure of the country.

A significant change in the NEP is the shift from traditional 10+2 educational systems to a more comprehensive 5+3+3+4 structure.

Under the new system, education will be divided into four stages – the first for primary to second class, the second for class third to fifth, the third for class sixth to eighth and the last stage for class nine to 12.

This restructuring aims to provide a more holistic and flexible approach to education while catering to the diverse needs of students of different age groups.
