While IIM Bangalore and IIM Calcutta bagged the second and third positions, respectively. IIT Madras ranked first under the overall and engineering category while AIIMS Delhi bagged the top position under the medical category.

Moreover, several IITs including IIT Bombay, IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, IIT Guwahati, IIT Kanpur, IIT Kharagpur and IIT Roorkee raised objections to the World University Rankings released by the Times Higher Education (THE) in 2020. According to an official statement jointly issued by the IITs, the parameters for the Global Rankings are not transparent and as a result, the IITs are often placed below the American and European universities.
