Bharat, that is India, officially the Republic of India (Bhārat Gaṇarājya), is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area; the most populous country as of June 2023; and from the time of its independence in 1947, the world’s most populous democracy. The new map of India depicts 28 states, 8 Union Territories that includes the National Capital Territory of Delhi.

Bounded by the Indian Ocean on the south, the Arabian Sea on the southwest, and the Bay of Bengal on the southeast, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north; and Bangladesh and Myanmar to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; its Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand, Myanmar, and Indonesia.

Lying entirely in the northern hemisphere, the mainland extends between latitudes 8° 4′ and 37° 6′ north, longitudes 68° 7′ and 97° 25′ east and measures about 3,214 km from north to south between the extreme latitudes and about 2,933 km from east to west between the extreme longitudes. It has a land frontier of about 15,200 km. The total length of the coastline of the mainland, Lakshadweep Islands and Andaman & Nicobar Islands is 7,516.6 km. India covers an area of 32,87,263 sq. km, extending from the snow-covered Himalayan heights to the tropical rain forests of the south.

India is divided into 28 states and 8 union territories, each with its own capital city. The states and union territories are further divided into districts and subdivisions. The capital city of India is New Delhi, which is located in the National Capital Territory of Delhi. It is the administrative, political, and cultural center of the country.

The Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act of 2019 designated October 31 as the designated day for the two Union Territories of J&K and Ladakh. It has never happened before for a state to be split into two Union Territories. With effect from January 26, 2020, India will have 8 union territories in addition to its 28 current states.

Since January 26th, the merger of Daman and Diu with Dadra and Nagar Haveli has formed a single union territory. This consolidation was carried out through a Bill passed in the winter session of Parliament, reducing the number of Union Territories to eight. Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, and Uttarakhand hold their legislative assemblies in different capital cities for their summer and winter sessions. Similarly, Ladakh has two administrative capitals, namely Leh and Kargil.
