The 16th Lok Sabha of India came into being on 26th May, 2014 with the oath-taking ceremony of the India's 15th Prime Minister Narendra Modi along with other ministers. Modi combined some departments which work in close tandem by bringing them under one ministry, thus reducing the size of the cabinet considerably.

On July 5, 2016, the Modi government effected its first cabinet reshuffle since coming to power in 2014. Smriti Irani and Babul Supriyo were shifted to Textiles and Heavy Industries ministries respectively. Minorities Affairs Minister Najma Heptullah had to pave way for her deputy Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi. Venkaiah Naidu was handed over Information & Broadcasting Ministry by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Heavy Industries minister G.M. Siddheshawara has been axed.
