Civics

The makers of our Constitution adopted the Parliamentary and the Cabinet form of Government. With reference to this, answer the following question:
Distinguish between the Cabinet and the Council of Ministers.


SOLUTION

The Council of Ministers of the Republic of India is the collective decision-making body of the Government of India, consisting of a group of ministers headed by the Prime Minister.
There are three categories of ministers, in descending order of rank:

  • Union Cabinet Minister: senior minister in-charge of a ministry.
  • Minister of State (Independent Charges): with no overseeing union cabinet minister for that portfolio
  • Minister of State (MoS): junior minister reporting to a cabinet minister, usually tasked with a specific responsibility in that ministry.

The Cabinet of India, also known as the Union Cabinet, is the collective decision-making body of the Government of India, consists of the Prime Minister and the cabinet ministers. The Cabinet is the ultimate decision-making body of the government.
Hence we could say that the cabinet is a subset of the council of ministers.
