Update: This report seems to be a rehash of the 2006 rankings. The THES website doesn't say anything about this year's rankings, so take this with truckloads of salt.

Today's Economic Times reports that in the latest ranking exercise by the Times Higher Education Supplement, the IITs are placed at No. 3 -- just behind MIT and UC-Berkeley -- among the technology universities across the world. They are also ranked 33rd among science universities.
Aside from the IITs, IIMs, JNU and DU also figure in the top 100 or 200 in different categories.
I haven't seen the THES lists for this year. If it is going to be behind a paywall (very likely), we will just have to go by reports in the Indian press.
