    Dear Sir, Greetings of the Day! The above article makes a mention of authorized books from UGC. Are there any books authorized, recommended or suggested by UGC. If yes, then please, do share the link from the website of UGC or CBSE, so that, we can buy those books from the market after accessing that link and taking down the name of the books. Your prompt reply is highly anticipated and would be greatly valued by all the aspirants, as , all of us are running a race against time, with very few days left for the examination. Thanking you.
