Institute of Physics Bhubaneswar is one of the top research centers of India in terms of publication citations

Following is page 3 of the article at http://www.ias.ac.in/currsci/10sep2010/577.pdf by K. P. Raghuraman, Romesh Chander and Giridhar Madras of Indian Institute of Science. (Thanks to Abi for the pointer.)

I confirmed from one of the authors that the highlighted institute is indeed the one from Bhubaneswar. I was also told that many their publications are the result of mega-collaborations.

The above is a great achievement for Institute of Physics. Especially since they have a small faculty of 19 and have a comparatively smaller overall budget. Kudos to them for their achievements.
