According to a statement issued by the DDU administration, QS has selected DDU Gorakhpur University among the top 100 universities of India and has ranked it 96th position in the country. Along with international ranking, QS has also ranked some of the countries and regions like India, Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Mexico and Europe. It has also been informed that this ranking has been done on the basis of faculty staff with PhD, papers per faculty, citation per paper, faculty-student ratio, employer reputation and academic reputation.

Sharing this news with deans, department heads and officers of the university, Gorakhpur university Vice Chancellor Rajesh Singh congratulated the faculty members for the achievement. “Usually this type of ranking is dominated by IITs, central universities and national institutions due to the Centre’s huge investment. Normally, there is no special investment in research and academics in state universities,” he said.
