President Dr Pranab Mukherjee has asked higher educational institutions to become more transparent and published all relevant information on their websites.

He expressed confidence that India will sooner than later find its rightful place in the global ranking of higher education institutions. The President also expressed happiness over increase in number of Indian institutions in the new Asian Universities Ranking published by QS increasing to 17 as compared to 11 in 2013.

The President made the above remarks while addressing a delegation from QS, ICAA, British Council, FICCI and KPMG who presented the first copy of “QS University Rankings: Asia 2014”.

Pointing out that he has been emphasizing the need for Indian education institutions to give importance to enhancing their global rankings, the President expressed happiness that these efforts are bearing fruit with the number of Indian institutions in the new Asian Universities Ranking published by QS increasing to 17 as compared to 11 last year.

The President told the delegation that Indian authorities will extend all possible cooperation to them in obtaining necessary information in the appropriate format from Indian higher education institutions.

He hoped that the country will regain the lost glory of the past and once again become a centre for cross fertilization of ideas from across the world.
