India has both private and public universities, many of which are supported by the government of India and the state Government. Apart from these there are private universities supported by various bodies and societies. Universities in India are recognized by the Universities of Grant Commission (UGC), which draws its power from the Universities Grants Commission Act, 1956 .In addition, 16 Professional Councils are established, controlling different aspects of accreditation and coordination.

The types of universities controlled by the UGC include :

. Central Universities , or Union universities are established by Act of Parliament and are under the purview of the Department of Higher Education in the Union Human Resource Development Ministry. The UGC lists 42 central universities.

. State universities are run by the state government of each of the states and territories of India, and are usually established by a local parliament act. As of 22 June 2011, the UGC lists 275 state universities.

. Deemed Universities, or “Deemed-to-be-Universities”, is a status of autonomy granted by the Department of Higher Education on the advice of the UGC, under Section 3 of UGC Act, 1956.The UGC list from 23 June 2008 lists 130 deemed

. Private universities are approved by the UGC. They can grant degrees but they are not allowed to have off-campus affiliated colleges. The UGC list from 1 August 2011 lists 90 private universities.
