The Deputy Prime Minister of India () is a member of the Indian cabinet in the Indian government. The post is not a constitutional post and seldom carries any specific powers. Generally a Deputy Prime Minister also holds other key portfolios like Home minister or Finance Minister. Though the Indian Constitution does not specify the position and with the Prime Minister himself being treated as "first among equals" in the cabinet, the position of Deputy Prime Minister is sometimes used by governments to bring political stability and strength by including a powerful individual, or in times of national emergency, when a proper chain of command is necessary.The Deputy Prime Minister in reality has no power except chairing the Cabinet meetings in the absence of the Prime Minister. Only if the Prime Minister is taken ill seriously, incapacitated or in the event of his death, does the Deputy Prime Minister take the same level of responsibility.
