What exactly is a Union Territory?

A union territory is an administrative division governed directly by the union government.

What is UT with a legislature?

These are Union Territories which have a partial statehood status, and this have a legislature and a Lieutenant Governor. Such UTs have an elected chief minister and a council of ministers. Lieutenant Governor is a representative of the President in the territory and acts on the aid and recommendation of the Council of Ministers but he does not need the approval of the Council of Ministers on every matter. In case of Delhi, the government exercises no power in the domain of land, law, and police. The LG has full powers to decide on these matters.

What is UT without legislature?

These are Union Territories that do not have a chief minister and are ruled directly by the Union government through the L-G who runs the day to day administration through his team of advisers.
