Today Chandigarh is a fully grown town of most modern architectural splendour and has acquired the enviable reputation of being the City Beautiful. It is stretched over an area of 114 sq. kms and is administered by Union Government through an Administrator and assisted by an Adviser, three Administrative Secretaries and a team of officers.
