The Full form of LG is Lieutenant Governor. He is in-charge of a U.T (Union Territory) in India. However, the rank of Lieutenant Governor is available only in the 3 union territories of India; Delhi, Puducherry and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. LG has the same functions and powers in the U.T that a governor has in the state and the President has at the union level in India.

The LGs are also appointed by the president like the governors of the states in India for a term of 5 years. His term can either be terminated by the president of India or can resign from the position.

Najeeb Jung is the 20th and current Governor of Delhi. His office is located at Raj Niwas in Delhi. To become Lieutenant Governor in India, a person must fulfill some criteria, such as; he must be the citizen of India, he should be at least thirty-five years old, should not be a member of the house of the state legislature or house of the parliament and should not hold any other office of profit.

In union territories like Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Ladakh, the LG holds more power, being both the head of state and government while the other union territories—Chandigarh, Daman and Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, and Lakshadweep—are governed by an administrator.
