100 Best universities for Mathematics in India

Below is the list of best universities in India ranked based on their research performance in Mathematics. A graph of 455K citations received by 45.3K academic papers made by 187 universities in India was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
