The Union Territory of Pondicherry extends from Latitude 11056' in the North to Longitude 79053' in the East.

Pondicherry comprises four coastal regions namely Pondicherry, Karaikal, Mahe, and Yanam. Pondicherry and Karaikal are situated on the East Coasts in Tamil Nadu, Yanam in Andhra Pradesh, and Mahe on the West Coast in Kerala.

It is still not known that why, French and British limited their territories in the intermingling manner, making Pondicherry a peculiar case for territorial jurisdiction.

Pondicherry more or less is a flat land with no hills and forests. Interspersed with parts of Cuddalore and Villupuram districts of Tamil Nadu, the Union Territory of Pondicherry presents a picture of scattered parts. Main soil types are red ferrallitic, black clay, and coastal alluvial.
