She is the second female finance minister of India after Indira Gandhi.

Modi Government Ministers

Since BJP returned to power with a majority on 23th May, various names have come up for the possible ministers in the new Modi government. PM Modi shows trust on many of his last govt ministers and allotted them some of the main departments in list

Former Finance minister Arun Jaitley will not be the part of this team as he requested PM not to give any responsibilities to him due to his poor health. Sushma Swaraj who served as foreign minister in the last government will also be not a part of the new government. The reason behind this is her poor health. So these two big names will not be a part of Modi Government ministers list.
