Chief Ministers Salary in India Rupees – State Wise List

According to the Indian Constitution, the appointment of the Chief Minister and other ministers is carried out by the Governor of each state, as outlined in Article 164. Across the 28 states and 8 Union Territories in the country, Chief Ministers receive a monthly salary for their services. However, the Constitution does not explicitly state the specific salaries for these positions. The salaries mentioned in the Second Schedule serve as an interim arrangement until the state legislature makes a final determination on the compensation for Chief Ministers and ministers. This framework ensures flexibility in setting salaries, allowing for adjustments based on the specific circumstances and decisions of each state.

Chief Ministers in different Indian states receive varying salaries, including compensation for their roles as Chief Minister and as Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) or Legislative Council (MLC). Wealthiest states tend to offer higher salaries to their Chief Ministers, while economically challenged regions, particularly in the North East, provide comparatively lower salaries. Notably, only three states offer Chief Ministers salaries exceeding those of state governors, these states are:

  • Telangana – Rs.410,000
  • Delhi – Rs.390,000
  • Uttar Pradesh – Rs.365,000
