Pandey was minister of state for tourism, and Prajapati was minister of state for mining (independent charge).

Shivkant Ojha was also added to the ministry but could not be sworn in as he was not in town.

This was the fourth cabinet expansion after Akhilesh Yadav became chief minister in March 2012.
