Following the repeal of Article 370 from the Indian Constitution, India's number of states has stayed at 28, while the number of Union territories (UTs) has risen to nine. There are three UTs with bicameral legislative assemblies: Delhi, Puducherry, and Jammu and Kashmir.

Appointment of Chief Minister

Our constitution makes no mention of the qualifications required to be nominated Chief Minister (CM). The Governor appoints the Chief Minister, according to Article 164 of the Constitution. This does not, however, imply that the governor is free to appoint anyone as the state's or UT's Chief Minister.

Powers and functions of the Chief Minister

The powers and functions of CM can be classified under the following heads:

With respect to the council of ministers:

The following are the powers of CM with respect to the state council of ministers:

  • He recommends that the Governor designate anyone as a minister. The Governor appoints ministers only on the recommendations of the Chief Minister.
  • Allocation and reshuffle of ministerial portfolios.
  • In the event of a disagreement, he can ask the minister to resign.
  • Oversees, directs, and supervises the work of all ministers.
  • If the Chief Minister resigns, the entire government must resign as well.

With Respect to Governor:

The Chief Minister serves as a liaison between the Governor and the state council of ministers, according to Article 167 of our constitution. The Governor's responsibilities include the following:

  • The CM must inform the Governor of any decisions made by the council of ministers concerning state administration.
  • Whenever the Governor requests information about the decisions made or the administration, the CM must offer it.
  • When a decision has been made without the input of the cabinet, the Governor may request that it be considered by the council of ministers.
  • The CM advises the Governor on critical appointments such as Attorney General, State Public Service Commission (Chairman and Members), State Election Commission, and so on.

With Respect to State Legislature:

  • He announces all of the policies on the floor of the house.
  • He advises the Governor to dissolve the legislative assembly.
  • He advises the Governor on calling and proroguing the State Legislative Assembly's sessions as needed.

Other Functions:

  • On the ground, he has the authority to keep in touch with the people on a regular basis and learn about their concerns in order to implement policies on the assembly floor.
  • He is the President of the State Planning Commission.
  • He serves as vice-chairman of the concerned zonal council for a year on a rotating basis.
  • In times of crisis, he serves as the state's crisis manager.


So, based on the preceding description, the Chief Minister of a state has a wide variety of responsibilities. He is the leader of the state's MLAs who were elected by the general public. We hope that our curated list of Indian states and UTs along with their chief ministers and governors turned out to be useful for you. Stay tuned with Safalta to get more such content!
