A much larger number of students were admitted to the Institute than earlier years, because of which we lost some points on the Faculty-student ratio, and our overall rank fell marginally. With the Institute progressing well on all fronts, we are confident of attaining much better rank in the coming years". In the 2022 edition, the Institute performed among the top 14% in the QS World University Rankings.
