In this post, we will list all the chief ministers and governors of every state of the union of India.

The list of chief ministers and governors of India will be State-wise.

Before we list all the chief ministers and governors of the Indian Union, let us try to answer some of the most common questions.

Who is the Chief Minister?

Chief Minister, in the Republic of India, is the head of the government of each of 28 states and 3 Union Territories (Delhi, Jammu and Kashmir and Puducherry).

After the abrogation of article 370 of the Indian Constitution, Jammu & Kashmir was converted into a Union territory with a Lt. Governor and a Chief Minister (currently vacant as of 1 November, 2019) running the government.

According to the Constitution of India, at the state level, the governor is de jure head, but de facto executive authority rests with the chief minister. This means that chief minister, like the Prime Minister (at center), exercise the real power and authority, and along with his council of ministers, is collectively responsible to the state assembly.

Who is the Governor?

Governor, in the Republic of India, acts as the nominal head of each state/Union territory.

In India, a lieutenant governor is in charge of a union territory. However, the rank is present only in the union territories of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Ladakh, Jammu and Kashmir, Delhi and Puducherry (the other territories have an administrator appointed, who is an IAS officer or a retired judge of a court )

The Governors and Lieutenant Governors/Administrators of the states and union territories of India have similar powers and functions at the state level as that of the President of India at Union level. The governors and lieutenant governors are appointed by the president for a term of five years.
