Her rise follows back-to-back title triumphs at the Indonesian Open Grand Prix, Singapore Open Super Series and Indian Open.
Before this the 20-year-old was ranked No 5, which she attained in March after becoming the first Indian woman to reach the semi-finals of the prestigious All England Super Series.
In the men's ranking, the Indian trio of Chetan Anand, P Kashyap and Arvind Bhatt were placed at 15th, 25th and 27th spots respectively, while mixed doubles pair of Jwala Gutta and V Diju were static at the seventh place.
