In this note we define and discuss some properties of partition of unity on *-inductive limits of topological vector spaces. We prove that if a partition of unity exists on a *-inductive limit space of a collection of topological vector spaces, then it is isomorphic and homeomorphic to a subspace of a *-direct sum of topological vector spaces.
