The Modi Ministry is the Council of Ministers headed by Narendra Modi that was formed after the 2014 general election which was held in nine phases from 7 April to 12 May in 2014. The results of the election were announced on 16 May 2014 and this led to the formation of the 16th Lok Sabha. The Council assumed office from 27 May 2014. Modi's Council of Ministers consists of 9 female ministers, of whom 6 hold the rank of Cabinet minister. This is the highest number of female Cabinet ministers in any Indian government in history. The only other government to appoint more than 1 female Cabinet minister, was the first UPA government from 2004 to 2009, which had 3 female Cabinet Ministers.[1] According to a Gallup poll, 73% of Indians approved of their country's leadership in 2014, with 23% disapproving. The figures in 2013 were 30% approval, and 48% disapproval when the second UPA government was in power.[2]

Background[edit] Further information: Indian general election, 2014
Indian general election, 2014
and Swearing-in ceremony of Narendra Modi The 2014 general election was held in nine phases from 7 April to 12 May, to constitute the 16th Lok Sabha. The results of the election were announced on 16 May 2014. On 20 May 2014, a meeting of the parliamentary party of BJP was organised at the Central Hall of the Parliament of India and Narendra Modi
Narendra Modi
was elected as its leader. Subsequently, BJP president Rajnath Singh
Rajnath Singh
along with other leaders of the ally parties of NDA, met President
President
Pranab Mukherjee
Pranab Mukherjee
at Rashtrapati Bhavan and handed over the support letter of 335 members of parliament and claimed for the government formation. Following this, Mukherjee invited Modi and under the powers vested on him under Constitution of India, appointed him as the Prime Minister of India
Prime Minister of India
and sought his advice for the names of the members of the council of ministers of his government.[3] On 9 November 2014, there was an expansion and reshuffling in his cabinet and 21 new cabinet ministers were sworn in.[4] History[edit] Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Narendra Modi
appointed Nripendra Misra as his Principal Secretary and Ajit Doval
Ajit Doval
as National Security Advisor (NSA) in his first week in office. He also appointed IAS officer A.K. Sharma and Indian Forest Service
Indian Forest Service
officer Bharat Lal as joint secretaries in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO). Both officers were part of Modi's government in Gujarat during his tenure as Chief Minister.[5] On 31 May 2014, Prime Minister Modi abolished all existing Group of Ministers (GoMs) and Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs).[6] A statement from the PMO explained, "This would expedite the process of decision making and usher in greater accountability in the system. The Ministries and Departments will now process the issues pending before the EGoMs and GoMs and take appropriate decisions at the level of Ministries and Departments itself". The UPA-II government had set up 68 GoMs and 14 EGoMs during its tenure, of which 9 EGoMs and 21 GoMs were inherited by the new government.[7][8] The move was described by the Indian media as being in alignment with Modi's policy of "minimum government, maximum governance".[7][9] The Indian Express stated that the GoMs and EGoMs had become "a symbol and an instrument of policy paralysis during the previous UPA government".[9] The Times of India described the new government's decision as "a move to restore the authority of the Union Cabinet in decision-making and ensure ministerial accountability".[10] Newly appointed cabinet minister Gopinath Munde, who was in charge of the Rural Development, Panchayati Raj, and Drinking Water and Sanitation portfolios, died in a car crash in Delhi on 3 June 2014.[11][12][13] Cabinet minister Nitin Gadkari, who is in charge of Road Transport and Highways, and Shipping, was assigned to look after Munde's portfolios on 4 June.[14] On 10 June 2014, in another step to downsize the government, Modi abolished four Standing Committees of the Cabinet. He also decided to reconstitute five crucial Cabinet Committees. These included the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS) that handles all high-level defence and security matters, the Appointments Committee of Cabinet (ACC) that recommends to the President
President
all senior bureaucratic appointments and postings, the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs (CCPA) which is a sort of small cabinet and the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs.[15][16] In May 2014,Modi’s council of ministers totals 46, including himself — far smaller than the 71 in UPA-II, mirroring one part of the BJP leader’s promise of “minimum government and maximum governance”.[17] The total strength of the Union Council of Ministers has been capped at 82.Article 72 of the Constitution prescribes that the total number of Ministers, including the Prime Minister, in the Council of Ministers shall not exceed 15 per cent of the number of members of the House of the People.[18] In November 2014, the Council of Ministers was expanded by adding four cabinet ministers, three Ministers of State (Independent Charge) and 14 Ministers of State, increasing the total size of the ministry from 45 to 66 ministers.[19] On July 5, 2016, the Union Council of Ministers was further expanded with the induction of 19 new Ministers and reduction of 5 old Ministers tallying to 77[20] Members of Union Council of Ministers.[21] List of Council members[edit] Council portfolios are as follows:[22] Source:[23][24][25]
