States and territories of India

India is a country with a rich and varied cultural heritage and is presumably one of the oldest civilizations in the world. The country is largely divided into Twenty Eight States and Seven Union Territories based on the diversity in culture and geography of the regions. The States and Union Territories are further subdivided into 602 Districts for administrative purposes. India is a union of twenty eight states and seven federally-governed union territories. All states, the National Capital Territory of Delhi and the union territory of Pondicherry have elected governments. The other five union territories have centrally appointed administrators. All states and union territories are subdivided into districts. In larger states, districts may be grouped together to form a division. A Union Territory is an administrative division of India. Unlike states, which have their own local governments, union territories are ruled directly by the national government. As of 2006, there are six union territories. Delhi was made the National Capital Territory in 1991 and has been granted statehood recently.
