Now let’s have a look at the Union Territories. It is important to note that UT have a different governing structure. They are under direct control of the central government and the President of India appoints an Administrator or Lieutenant-Governor for each UT. Delhi and Puducherry are somewhat different as they get to choose their own elected legislative assemblies and the executive councils of ministers with partially state-like function. (Arvind Kejriwal and V. Narayanaswamy are the current Chief Ministers of Delhi and Puducherry respectively )
