According to the officials, over 8,000 guests, including various professionals and cultural performers, will attend the oath-taking ceremony. The guest list has been kept compact, given the ensuing G7 meeting in Italy, for which Modi will leave later in the week, reported ANI, citing sources. Following the ceremony, President Droupadi Murmu will host a banquet for the dignitaries at Rashtrapati Bhavan.

PM Modi’s cabinet is expected to include 27 to 30 ministers, roughly a third of whom are allies of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) and some ministers of state. The formula shared with allies suggests a cabinet minister’s post for every four to five MPs and a junior minister’s post for every two.

In the recently held general elections, the BJP bagged 240 seats, and the National Democratic Alliance secured a majority of 293 seats out of 543 Lok Sabha seats. On the other hand, the Congress won 99 seats in the general election, while the INDIA bloc bagged 234 seats.
