Indian order of precedence
The order of precedence of the Republic of India is the protocol list (hierarchy of important positions) in which the functionaries, dignitaries and officials are listed according to their rank and office in the Government of India. The order is established by the President of India, through the President's Secretariat and is maintained by the Ministry of Home Affairs. It is only used to indicate ceremonial protocol and has no legal standing and does not reflect the Indian presidential line of succession or the co-equal status of the separation of powers under the constitution. It is not applicable for the day-to-day functioning of the Government of India.
