The Indian peninsula shares land borders with Pakistan to the west, Nepal, China, and Bhutan to the north, and Myanmar and Bangladesh to the east. India lies in close proximity to Sri Lanka and the Maldives in the Indian Ocean. India also shares a maritime border with Myanmar, Indonesia, and Thailand.
The Republic of India is also referred to as a federal union. It comprises 28 states and 8 Union Territories known as UTs. All states, including the UTs of Pondicherry, Jammu and Kashmir, and Delhi, have elected governments and legislatures. They follow the Westminster governance mode. The other remaining UTs are ruled directly by the Central Government with the help of the appointed administrators.
