English: Main administrative divisions of india
[ ]

India consists of 29 states and seven union territories. All states, and the two union territories of Puducherry and Delhi (National Capital Territory), have elected legislatures and governments patterned on the Westminster model. The other five union territories are directly ruled by the Central government through appointed administrators. In 1956, under the States Reorganisation Act, states were formed on a linguistic basis. [1] Since then, this structure has remained largely unchanged.

Each state or union territory is further divided into administrative districts. [2] The districts in turn are further divided into:

  • in rural areas: subdistricts (named tehsils / taluks / mandals / subdivisions / circles / communes depending of the state or territory), local councils (gram panchayats), and eventually into villages and wards (gram sabhas), or
  • in large urban areas: metropoles (comparable to subdistricts but with more autonomy), municipalities (or municipal corporations), and eventually into civic zones and civic wards.

For interstate cooperation and planning, the 29 states and 7 union territories are also grouped into 6 zones (headed by 5 zonal councils, plus the projected North Eastern Council).
