After Telangana  split from Andhra Pradesh to become the newest -- 29th -- State of India on 2nd June 2014 with Hyderabad as the capital of the new state and Amravathi as the capital of Andhra Pradesh, we make a refreshed and updated list of all the states, their capital cities and their chief ministers. [The list is updated as and when local government elections take place.]

India comprises 29 States and seven Union Territories. A Chief Minister is an elected head of the local government in a State for a five-year term and can serve unlimited number of terms. Union Territories, unlike States, are directly ruled by the central government. But some Union Territories in India di have a local legislature and a chief minister (such as Delhi or Chandigarh).
