In a state government, the Governor is the constitutional head. At the state level, a Governor has similar powers and tasks as the President of India does at the Union level. Along with being the Constitutional head, they also serve as a link between the central and the state government. As an appointee of the President, the Governor is responsible for representing the centre in the state as well as being a channel of communication between the two.
In states, we have Governors, while in Union Territories including the National Capital Territory of Delhi we have Lieutenant Governors or Administrator.
The President of India appoints the Governor of a state for a term of 5 years. An individual must be an Indian citizen and be over the age of 35 years of age to qualify for this position.
