* Interim - It is debatable whether Mr. Gulzari Lal Nanda was a Prime Minister
or an Acting Prime Minister. The constitution does not have a position of
acting Prime Minister. Mr. Nanda was sworn in as the Prime Minister of India.
In contrast, the constitution provides for an acting President who discharges
the duties of a President. Hence, constitutional experts and historians now
count Mr. Nanda as the second Prime Minister of India.
