India – Order of precedence

At present, the Chief Ministers of Indian states (within their respective states) and Cabinet Ministers of the Union are ranked 7th in the order of precedence. Chief Ministers outside their respective states are ranked 8th, below that of Cabinet Ministers of the Union. Some of the states in India are very large. The state of Uttar Pradesh has a population of nearly 200 million. If it is a separate country, it would be the 5th or 6th largest country in the world. It is unfair to relegate the chief representatives of states, particularly of large states, to 7th or 8th place in the order of precedence. Every year the Chief Ministers of one fifth of the states could by rotation be made the ex-officio Deputy Prime Ministers of the country and placed at 5th position in the order of precedence.  In Czechoslovakia, the Chief Ministers of the two federating states were ex-officio Deputy Prime Ministers. Making the Chief Ministers, ex-officio Deputy Prime Ministers will also strengthen centre-state relations.
