It was right in ncert...B'cause the present syllabus of ncert is not updated...
In present situation,there are 28 states and 8 union territories...
The changes happened in current (2020)are as follows:
1)Removal of article 370, so J&K and Ladakh became two union territories...
2) Dadra nagar haveli and Daman&Deew are merged together and made a single UT...
Therefore,There now 28 states and 8 UT's...

Koushik Kalita answered May 28, 2020
There is no correct answer now in this question.
According to the official list of states and union territories of India, there are 28 full fledged states; and 8 union territories in India at present. Because, after the removal of Article 370 from the constitution of India, the state, Jammu & Kashmir converted into two union territories-
(i) Jammu & Kashmir.
(ii) Ladakh.
