Indian Cabinet Ministers
The executive authority of the Republic of India is exercised by the Indian Cabinet Ministers. The Cabinet is led by the Prime Minister of India. This as a whole is known as the Union Cabinet. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has won the General Election 2019; thereby electing Shri Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister of India as of 2019.
Minister of State (independent charge) is a Minister who is a minister without an overseeing Cabinet Minister in the State or the Union government. He is in charge of his own Ministry.
Minister of State is a minister of junior rank in the Council of Ministers in Union Government who may assist a cabinet minister or have independent charge of a ministry.
Deputy Minister is the minister (if any) who presides when the Prime Minister is not present. Example – Sardar Vallabhai Patel, who later became a PM, was once a Deputy Prime Minister.
