--B V Selvarj (Administrato r)

*A Union Territory is an administrative division of

India, in the federal framework of governance. Unlike the states of India, which have their own elected governments, union territories are ruled directly by the

federal government; the President of India appoints an Administrator or Lieutenant-Governor for each territory. There are seven union territories. Delhi, the capital of India, is also a Union territory. Delhi and Pondicherry have been given partial statehood. Delhi is redefined as National Capital Territory. Delhi and Pondicherry have their own elected legislative assemblies and the executive councils of ministers, but their powers are limited; certain legislation must be reserved for the "consideration and assent" of the President of India.
