The Government of Maharashtra is the government for the state of Maharashtra in Western India. It is an elected government with 288 MLAs elected to the legislative assembly for a 5-year term. Maharashtra has a bicameral legislature i.e. it consists of two houses—Vidhan Sabha (legislative assembly) and Vidhan Parishad (legislative council). As is the case in a Parliamentary system, the government is formed by the party, alliance or group of assembly members who command the majority. The leader of the majority in assembly becomes the Chief Minister and selects the cabinet members. From the formation of the state in 1960, the Congress party or Congress led alliance have ruled the state for the major part. Non-Congress government was first formed in 1978, then in 1995 with Shivsena-BJP alliance, and most recently in 2014 with a BJP led alliance.


As of 6 December 2014, the government of Maharashtra consists of 18 cabinet ministers and 12 ministers of state.[1] [2]
