The Deputy Chief Minister of Rajasthan is a part of the state government of Rajasthan. The position of Deputy Chief Minister is not explicitly defined or mentioned in the Constitution of India. However, the Supreme Court of India has stated that the appointment of Deputy Chief Ministers is not unconstitutional. The court has clarified that a Deputy Chief Minister, for all practical purposes, remains a minister in the council of ministers headed by the Chief Minister and does not draw a higher salary or perks compared to other ministers.[1]
