New Delhi, Jun 27: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday lauded Indian universities for making strides on the global stage and said the government's commitment to quality education is yielding encouraging results.

In a post on 'X', Modi wrote, "Great to see India's universities making strides on the global stage! Our commitment to quality education is yielding encouraging results.

"India's rising visibility in the @timeshighered world rankings is remarkable, driven by @narendamodi's internationalisation reforms. A record 133 Indian universities have submitted to the 2025 rankings -- up from 42 in 2017 -- making India the fourth best represented in the world," Baty wrote. PTI
