Five Institutes of Technology (IITs) are in the top 20 in the world's first committed ranking of universities in the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) group of countries. China's universities conquered the table with 40 universities featured in the top 100, 22 in the top 50 and 4 in the top 5 with Tsinghua University being ranked the best university. According to the "QS University Rankings: BRICS" to be publicized on Tuesday, Russia has 19 of its universities in the top 100, Brazil 17, India 16 and South Africa 8 in the list. IIT-Delhi takes the top ranking (13) among Indian universities followed by IIT-Mumbai (15), IIT-Madras (16), IIT-Kanpur (17) and IIT-Kharagpur (18). There is then an enormous gap on that merit list when it comes to Indian entries. The next rank for an Indian university is one time again IIT-Rourkee (34) and IIT-Guwahati (51). University of Calcutta is ranked 52nd best in BRICS followed by University of Delhi at 53. University of Mumbai is ranked 62, University of Hyderabad 64, University of Madras 70, Benaras Hindu University 85, IIT-Allahabad 92, and University of Pune 94 with Manipal University taking the 100th spot.

The BRICS ranking is the initial of its kind to apply a dedicated methodology particularly designed to place the featured nations on a more alike footing. The results are made up of respondents from over 9,800 academics from the nations. QS' recent world's 200 top lists had revealed that not a single Indian university figured in the world's top 200 lists.
