Cabinet Minister

Cabinet Minister or Union Minister is treated as the head of a particular ministry such as Education, Health, Home, Finance, Defence etc. Cabinet Minister possesses maximum authority and responsibility. A Cabinet minister may also hold additional charges of other Ministries, where no other Cabinet minister is appointed.

Minister of State

Minister of State (MoS) is junior to Cabinet Minister. Each cabinet minister has Minister of State. Every MoS reports to either Cabinet Minister or Independent charge of ministry, they works in close coordination. MoS are not called to the Cabinet meetings.

A Minister of State with independent charge is a minister without an overseeing Cabinet Minister in the State or Union Government of India. He himself is in charge of his ministry. Moreover such ministers can take part in cabinet meetings on important issues.
