Prime Minister Narendra Modi who had reshuffled his Union Cabinet by including new faces a couple of months back had given his declaration on his assets. Including Narendra Modi, the members of the Union Cabinet had also submitted their declarations for the financial year 2020-21. The Cabinet ministers had smartly invested in the stock market helping them to see a rise in their fortune and worth.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi did not make any investments in the stock market or other areas. But he had fixed deposits against his name and as a result, his net worth went up by a few lakhs. His net worth for 2020-21 stood at Rs 3.07 crore which was Rs 2.85 crore for 2019-20.

However, the Union Cabinet Ministers made smart moves by making investments in stock markets. With the rise in the value of their shares, their income had also increased. Narendra Modi’s cabinet has a few richest Ministers. Let's have a look at the list.

Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia owns assets worth Rs 35.4 crore including investments of close to Rs 11 lakh in mutual funds. The major share of the Union Cabinet Ministers saw a jump in their assets and net worth, thanks to the increase in stock market value.
