The rapid rise can be attributed to India beating Nepal in the qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup and 2019 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Cup.
World Cup winners Germany are on top of the rankings followed by Argentina.
Belgium moved above Colombia into third after their Euro 2016 qualifying wins over Cyprus and Israel last month.
Brazil jumped a spot to fifth after wins against France and Chile in friendly internationals.
France (11th) and Italy (13th) dropped out of the top 10 with Switzerland (ninth) and Spain (10th) entering the top 10.
