List of Chief Ministers in India

A Chief Minister in India is the elected head of government at the level of States, and is vested with most of the executive powers. He or she is elected by legislators of the political party or coalition commanding an assembly majority, and serves a five-year term with a provision of re-election. The Governor is the head of state, but his or her role is largely ceremonial.

There are a total of thirty Chief Ministers elected by all twenty-eight states and two out of the seven union territories. The following table lists the parties that hold power in various states.
