Situation report showed India is at the stage of community transmission.
The organization said India has a cluster of cases and not community transmission, reports the NDTV.
While the India column in the report had said "community transmission", China, the first country where COVID-19 erupted late last year, showed a "cluster of cases".
India has 6,412 cases of coronavirus, including 199 deaths. Thirty-three deaths have been reported in the past 24 hours.
The government has firmly denied that the country is in Stage 3 or community transmission, which is when the infections escalate and it is difficult to trace the source.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's move to order a 21-day lockdown has helped slow the spread of coronavirus, believe officials and experts.
According to WHO, the transmission scenarios - no confirmed cases, sporadic cases, clusters of cases, and community transmission - "are self-reported" by member states.
