List of current Indian deputy chief ministers

Last Updated on August 31, 2021

The Deputy Chief Minister is a member of the state government. While not a constitutional office, it seldom carries any specific powers. A deputy chief minister usually also holds a cabinet portfolio such as home minister or finance minister. In the parliamentary system of government, the Chief Minister is treated as the “first among equals” in the cabinet; the position of deputy chief minister is used to bring political stability and strength within a coalition government.

Currently, 14 out of the 28 states and 1 out of the 8 union territories have deputy chief ministers. Out of these 15 states and union territories, Andhra Pradesh has five deputy chief ministers, while Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Goa have two deputy chief ministers each. No other states and union territories have more than one deputy chief minister in office.

Ten incumbents belong to the Bharatiya Janata Party, five incumbents belong to the YSR Congress Party and 2 belong to National People’s Party. No other party has more than one deputy chief minister in office.
