QS has published the 2020 edition of its India University Rankings. The upper level is dominated, as expected, by the Indian Institutes of Technology which take seven out of the top ten places. The methodology is based on that of the World University Rankings but with modifications to suit national priorities. There are three additional indicators, Staff with PhD, Papers per Faculty, and Citations per Paper. The weighting for the Academic Survey has been reduced and that for the Employer Survey increased.
