Here is the full list of Union Council of Ministers with their portfolios. PM Modi clearly signaled his political weight in the government by placing Home Minister Amit Shah as second most senior in the ministerial pecking order just after Defence Minister Rajnath Singh.

A day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi was sworn in along with a 57-member Council of Ministers, portfolios for ministers have been announced by the government. The new Council of Ministers has 24 Cabinet ministers, 9 Ministers of State with independent charge and 24 Ministers of State. There are a total of 24 new faces — seven hold Cabinet rank, one Minister of State (independent charge) and 16 Ministers of State.

The Council of Ministers, who were administered the oath of office by President Ram Nath Kovind in the forecourt of Rashtrapati Bhavan Thursday evening, included his trusted lieutenant and BJP president Amit Shah and a surprise entrant, former Foreign Secretary S Jaishankar, as Cabinet ministers.
