States of India and their Capitals with Chief Ministers

Scholarship Examination in India

Preparation for any competitive exam, be it Railways RRB, Bank PO, Bank Clerk, LIC AAO, etc., is incomplete without having a good knowledge of Current Affairs & General Knowledge. The most trivial way through which these exams put your General Knowledge to test is by asking direct questions on States of India and Capitals. If prepared in a correct manner, they can be aced in no time whatsoever. 

India is the land of diversity and currently, it has 29 states and 7 Union territories. Telangana, the last formed state in India was carved out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014 and this is how the total number of states in India reached 29 in the year 2014. 

The chief minister rules the local government in each of 29 states and 2 union territories that are Delhi and Puducherry. Both have their own elected legislative assemblies and the executive councils of ministers with partially state-like function. The remaining 5 union territories are ruled by the centre through administrators, appointed by the President of India.

Below is the complete list States of India, their Capitals and its Chief Ministers:
