In spite of all criticism, 22 Tamil Nadu institutions have come in the top 100 ranks. In particular, they include many state-run universities”.“It is very gratifying that Bharathiar University has securing the 13th rank in spite of much mismanagement and adversity. The entire credit goes to faculty members who were recruited earlier,” he said.

“At the same time, the entire ranking system looks flawed. They simply go by whatever the institutions upload on their websites. There should be some mechanism to verify the information. It must be cross-checked and if needed, physically verified. Considering the timing of the report’s release, the many institutions will exploit the rankings for commercial interest,” he added.
