Not too many days ago, when PMO published its minsters’ balance sheet 
on their website, it was placed as frontline news in all leading mediaagencies in India. In the social media too, it received many favourableand unfavourable comments from its online readers. Mostly, people weresurprised to know the huge degree of mismatch between the figures they expected and what was declared.We will stay away on making any qualified statement on this, however believing if the figures are real and unbiased 
here is what our analysissuggests.1.
Geographical Representation
Locations where regional  parties have strong presence has lower council representation. 2.
 Asset Summary 
Eastern region lags far behind others.3.
Immovable Assets
Preferred choice in North & Central India4.
Cash & Deposits -
As important as immovable assets for North& Central, preferred choice of Cabinet ministers from South5.
 Jewelleries & Vehicles
Major shifts to Central & Southernregions; South enjoys the fleet of luxury vehicles

As of September 15, 2011 Indian union councilmembers are uniformly distributed across India as seenin markers plotted in blue colour in the above pictorialrepresentation of India.Now for the picture of the year, that summarizes the asset sizesrepresented by bubbles. Council members have generatedenough asset size from all parts of India other than the East. Beit the worth of properties under their name, bank balance, jewelleries or vehicles, Council Members in east are outdoneby a big margin by their fellow mates from North, South andCentral India. Mr. Vincent Pala from Shillong is the lonewarrior of East, to give a healthy competition to ministers fromother regions. The list of top rankers from different parts
Mr. Kapil Sibal, Mr. Ashwani Kumar, Ms.Ambika Soni and Mr. Virbhadra Singh
Mr. Scindia, Mr. Praful Patel and Mr. KamalNath
Mr. Sharad Pawar, Mr. Milind Deora and Mr. RajivShukla
Mr. Alagiri, Mr. Chidambaram, Mr. Napoleon,Mr. Jayanthi Narayan, Mr. Purandeswari and Mr. V KChandra Deo from South

For the uninitiated, formation of Clusters is nothing but comprising members from closeproximity region, in to one point on the map. One interestinghighlight (in light orange) is the lowest representation from theregion combining parts of 
Eastern UP, Bihar, Chhattisgarh,Orissa, and Eastern MP. Area-wise it is ~20% of India, and alittle more in population terms, whereas, it has councilrepresentation of about 4% only. This could be attributed to thedominance of regional (state) level parties in these areas. Onemay also note that these are the regions where Naxalitemovements are highly active, though it cannot be attributed.

As shown in another map, Council Members fromCentral and North India have amassed huge immovableassets over the years. So, does it suggest a preference of the immovable asset class over others by the peoplerepresentatives from this region? Or have they equallyinvested into other forms of assets too?
(Please note that inherited and gifted properties are not included in this asset class)
Here, it’s almost
a tie between the North, Central and South regions. In fact, this asset class is highly preferred by Mr.Scindia (70% asset as cash & investments). And, there are 9 other members who have scored well above INR 6 million inthis asset class.One step further, we plotted separately as per the designation of these members
Cabinet Ministers, and State Ministers.One remarkable observation in South regions is that Cabinet Ministers tend to have much significant wealth in financialinstruments as compared to State Ministers.

North & Central India Dominates
4. Cash & Deposits
As important as Immovable for North & Central; preferred choice of Cabinet Ministers fromSouth, also
