Chandigarh is a Union Territory in India and serves as the capital for two states, Punjab and Haryana. The administration of Chandigarh is unique as it is directly governed by the Central Government of India rather than having its own state government. The administrative structure of Chandigarh involves the Chandigarh Administration, which acts as the local government responsible for various administrative functions within the territory. The Chandigarh Administration is headed by an Administrator who is appointed by the President of India. The Administrator is usually a senior bureaucrat or a retired Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officer. The administration is assisted by various government departments and agencies that oversee different aspects of governance, including urban planning, public services, education, health, transportation, and more.
