Below is a brief difference between the different kinds of capitals.
- An administrative capital is one where all the offices of the executive government are situated.
- A legislative capital is the one where the state assembly convenes.
- A judicial capital is the one where the territorial high courts are located.
All the states and two union territories, Puducherry and the National Capital Territory of Delhi, have an elected form of government and legislatures. They are headed by a Chief Minister, who is elected for a term of five years. The Central government directly rules all the other union territories. Under the States Reorganisation Act of 1956, the states were reorganised based on language.
The map above shows locations of all the States and Union Territories along with their capitals.
