New Delhi: More than 34,7000 colleges and 695 universities in India are operating without any accreditation from the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). The Union Minister of State for Education Subhas Sarkar informed this in Lok Sabha on Monday.

“As per information received from the UGC, out of the 1,113 universities and 43,796 colleges, NAAC has accredited 418 universities and 9,062 colleges,” the minister said in a written reply.
