Smaller government by eliminating 50% of departments

Friends,

We all know that governments want to appoint a lot of their supporters to posts and that is the reason for large number of departments in India. The US government has only 15 members of the cabinet but the Indian government has 26 cabinet ministers as well as 49 ministers of state. As we wish to support a minimum government we can actually eliminate 50% of the departments and the unnecessary staff and spend associated with each. Each bubble in graph below represents a ministry.
