Union Cabinet Ministers and their Constituencies & Portfolio 2021

This is the first reshuffle in the Council of Ministers by Prime Minister Modi since he assumed charge for a second term in May 2019. With this reset, Modi has brought in young faces and has also given representation to various social groups and regions in the reshuffle. As many as 15 Cabinet ministers, including some new faces, were sworn in at the swearing-in ceremony held in the Darbar Hall of the Rashtrapati Bhawan. Besides these, 28 leaders took oath as ministers of states. With this, the overall strength of the Union Cabinet has risen to 78, including the prime minister.

  • As per the Constitution of India, the Council of Ministers’ total strength should not exceed 15% of the Lok Sabha Strength. The 17th Lok Sabha’s current strength is 543 members.
  • The youngest minister sworn-in —Nisith Pramanik–is 35 years of age.
  • With the new entrants, the Union Cabinet has a total of 11 women ministers, changing the perspective the Modi cabinet had in 2019 about the meagre representation of women

The seven women who took oath as ministers of state were Karandlaje, Darshana Vikram Jardosh, Lekhi, Annpurna Devi, Pratima Bhoumik, Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, and Apna Dal’s Anupriya Singh Patel. Nirmala Sitharaman, Smriti Irani (both Cabinet ministers), Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti, and Renuka Singh Saruta are already part of the Union Cabinet.
