What is the need for union territories in India that is why cannot they be recognised as states or why tax-cuts along in UTs?
look indian constitution is federal in character asevident in the divisionof powers between centre and states. union territories onthe otherhand are directly under the administration of the president (or in other words under the cabinet) and do not have popular bodies like legislative assemblies. t…he reason is that due to certain geographical, cultural, and strategic factors such territories needs to be protected from disturbances and even political turmoil...thiswould only be possible when there is swift and timely action on part of the administration...hence it was felt more prudent to keep such areas under direct supervision of the president 1 delhi and chandigarh : important due to political and administrative consideration 2 cultural distinctiveness : pondicherry daman diu etc. 3 strategic importance: andamans (MORE)
Harbours act as better anchorage if the waterbody is surrounded by more than one sided landmass at the coast. Western India has much more indentations and creeks as compared to the eastern part and hence it becomes easier to load and unload to and from the ships. Moreover Western coast has deeper wa…ter at its continental shelf compared to the eastern coast, which again allows big and heavy ships to move closer to the main land. (MORE)
this is due to 3 major factors: 1. west coast is a submerged kind of coast, while east is emergent. ships, therefore, can come deep towards the west coast. 2. west rivers form estuaries and eastern rivers form delta. therefore it becomes difficult for ships to reach the east coast covered with se…diments. 3. continental shelf on east extends up to 500 km into the sea, so, difficult to develop good ports and harbours. ships can enter and leave only during tides. but this does-not mean we cannot have ports in this condition. some of the world's well known ports are located on Continental shelves like London, Singapore, Hongkong.

After the independence new constitution of India was enforced and a State Reorganization Act 1956 came into effect on Nov. 1, 1956. Accordingly, several changes were made and some new States and their Capitals were formed. Important few of the major changes in terms of new Capitals were as following…- (1).
