Knowing the Capitals, Chief Ministers And Governors Of Indian States would perhaps be one of the most basic things which you are expected to remember. The same for the Union Territories of India becomes even more important! These may be asked in both written exams or interviews. We have listed below the same in an easy manner to revise. Feel free to copy the information, print it, share it or even bookmark the page (press Ctrl+D) for future access. Mug it up so that you remember it even during your sleep 😀 (In case you find some error(s) please let us know in the comments below. My thanks to all our readers who have suggested updates to us! )

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 )
|Andaman and Nicobar Island||Port Blair||Admiral Devendra Kumar Joshi||Lieutenant Governor|
|Chandigarh||Chandigarh||V. P. Singh Badnore||Administrator|
|Dadra and Nagar Haveli||Silvassa||Praful Khoda Patel||Administrator|
|Daman and Diu||Daman||Praful Khoda Patel||Administrator|
|Jammu and Kashmir||Srinagar (May -October)|
|Shri Manoj Sinha||Lieutenant Governor|
|Puducherry||Puducherry||Kiran Bedi||Lieutenant Governor|

Andhra pradesh capital is amaravathi…not Hyderabad
Not yet. Eventually, Amaravati is going to become the capital of Andhra Pradesh but as of now, it is Hyderabad.
Abin Kurian says
DharamShala / Dharmashala is the second capital of Himachal Pradesh .. Pls update
what is written after andhra pradesh capital in brackets
De facto means a state of affairs that is true in fact, but that is not officially sanctioned. In contrast, de jure means a state of affairs that is in accordance with law. So, Hyderabad is the current capital and it is clear that the capital of Andhra Pradesh will be shifted to Amaravati.
