How to remember the States of India

I have always failed to name the 28 states of India, in a single go. A minimum of 3 states would be missing in my list. I needed to find an easy way to remember them. So, just like the VIBGYOR, I have drafted a term for it. Though it, is a big one, I hope it would be easy for you to memorize it.Image


PROBSNCW  – These are the alphabets of the state which are 1 in number

HUGJTK         – These letters have 2 states

(Haryana & Himachal Pradesh; Uttar Pradesh & Uttaranchal; Gujarat & Goa; Jammu & Jharkhand; Tripura & Tamilnadu; Kerala & Karnataka)

A                    – This alphabet has 3 states with it

(Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh)

M                   – 5 states in India, start with the letter M

(Madhya Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Manipur, Maharashtra)


This same short-form has been used to draft the term for the Union Territories too. 

Hope this would be useful in knowing all the states of India, in a easy way. Cheers.
