Ministries

The Union Council of Ministers is the highest executive body of the Government of India. The council is responsible for exercising administrative authority in the nation and advising the president of India. It is chaired by the prime minister and consists of the heads of each of the executive government ministries.

The Government of India exercises its executive authority through a number of government ministries or departments of state. A ministry is composed of employed officials, known as civil servants, and is politically accountable through a minister. Most major ministries are headed by a Cabinet Minister, who sits in the Union Council of Ministers, and is typically supported by a team of junior ministers called the Ministers of State.
