The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is an apex body which regulates technical and management education in India. According to a list uploaded by AICTE on it’s official website; 327 Business Schools in India are unapproved.
The list was updated on 05 July 2012, there is a significant rise in the unapproved Institutes in the past few years. Maharashtra has the highest number of Business Schools (108) which are not approved by AICTE, second in the list of unapproved Business Schools is Delhi with 61 and the third in the list is Andhra Pradesh at 44.
Below is a table with state wise count of unapproved Business Schools.

According to a report, AICTE Chairman S S Mantha made a statement saying, “Sitting in Delhi, I cannot go and raid some institutions in some other state. We also cannot stop the state government from giving approvals.” (via)
The data shown above and the statement given by SS Mantha contradicts, as Delhi alone has 61 unapproved Business Schools which is next only to Maharashtra. The obvious question would be why didn’t AICTE bring down or take action against unapproved Business Schools in Delhi.
