43 new ministers are to be inducted into the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Union Cabinet today evening. The list has a mix of youth and those who come with rich administrative experience, including former chief ministers.

There is also a good mix of experienced professionals with 13 lawyers, six doctors, five engineers, seven civil servants, seven with research degrees and three with degrees in business. The Cabinet also cuts across castes and religions.
