Rulers: India

States after 1947 A-L


Note: Between 26 Jan 1950 and 1 Nov 1956 there were four types of divisions: Part A states (under a governor), Part B states (under a rajpramukh), Part C states (under a chief commissioner), and one Part D territory; from 1956 there were only states (former Part A and B states) and union territories (former Part C states and Part D territory). Gaps in the lists of chief ministers usually signify periods of "president's rule."
