Union Council of Ministers
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Union Council of Ministers exercises executive authority in the Republic of India.[1] It consists of senior
ministers, called "Cabinet Ministers", and junior ministers, called "Ministers of State". It is led by the Prime
Minister. A smaller executive body, called the Union Cabinet is the decision­making body in India.[2] Only the
Prime Minister and ministers of the rank of "Cabinet Minister" are members of the Cabinet. The most senior civil
servant in India, called the Cabinet Secretary, leads the Cabinet Secretariat, and provides administrative assistance
to the Council of Ministers, attends and convene its meetings thus making him ex­officio Secretary to the Union
Council of Ministers .[3] Ministers of State are tasked with assisting Cabinet Ministers in their work.[4]

Regulations
As a collective, the Council of Ministers is responsible to the lower house of the Indian Parliament, called the Lok
Sabha (House of People).[1] According to the Constitution of India, the total number of ministers in the Council of
Ministers must not exceed 15% of the total number of members of the House of the People. Ministers must be
members of parliament. Any minister who is not a member of either the lower or upper houses of parliament for
six consecutive months is automatically stripped of his or her ministerial post.[1]

Ranking
There are three categories of ministers, in descending order of rank:

Cabinet Minister: member of cabinet; leads a ministry
Minister of State (Independent Charges): junior minister not reporting to a cabinet minister
Minister of State (MoS): junior minister reporting to a cabinet minister, usually tasked with a specific
responsibility in that ministry

Current ministry
As a collective, each successive Council of Ministers is referred to as a ministry. The current ministry is led by
Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who took office on 26 May 2014.
