Note On IIT Rankings 2020

There are a couple of things that a student must understand when viewing these NIRF ranking of IITs by MHRD.

  1. The rankings 1 to 4 interchange very frequently. They are so close to each other in quality that it doesn’t really matter. However, most consider IIT Bombay to have greater brand value. It is also more accessible, hence, the top rankers prefer IIT Bombay over Kharagpur.
  2. IIT Guwahati has a high ranking as it has recently won accolades such as world rank 87 for universities under the age of 50 by the Times Higher Education World University Rankings, and is the first Indian university to make this list. However, the rankings from 6-9 are also very very close to each other, and hence the exact order does not matter between IITs ranked 6-9.
