Narendra Damodardas Modi is an Indian politician who is the 14th and current Prime Minister of India, in office since May 2014.

  • Born on: 17 September 1950
  • Place of Birth:  Vadnagar, Mehsana district, Bombay State (present-day Gujarat).
  • Mother: Hiraben


  • 1978: Bachelor of Arts degree in political science – School of Open Learning at University of Delhi
  • 1982: Master of Arts degree in political science – Gujarat University

Narendra Modi completed his higher secondary education in Vadnagar in 1967, where a teacher described him as an average student and a keen debater, with an interest in theatre. Mr. Narendra Modi had an early gift for rhetoric in debates, and this was noted by his teachers and students

In 1978 Mr. Modi received a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from School of Open Learning at University of Delhi. Five years later, in 1982, he received a Master of Arts degree in political science from Gujarat University, as an external distance learning student.


As a child, Mr. Narendra Modi helped his father sell tea at the Vadnagar railway station, and later ran a tea stall with his brother near a bus terminus. When eight years old, Modi discovered the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), and began attending its local shakhas (training sessions). There, Modi met Lakshmanrao Inamdar, popularly known as Vakil Saheb, who inducted him as a balswayamsevak (junior cadet) for RSS and became his political mentor.

While Mr. Modi was training with the RSS, he also met Vasant Gajendragadkar and Nathalal Jaghda, Bharatiya Jana Sangh leaders who were founding members of the BJP’s Gujarat unit in 1980.

Mr. Narendra Modi became an RSS sambhag pracharak (regional organiser) in 1978, overseeing RSS activities in the areas of Surat and Vadodara, and in 1979 he went to work for the RSS in Delhi, where he was put to work researching and writing the RSS’s version of the history of the Emergency.[64] He returned to Gujarat a short while later, and was assigned by the RSS to the BJP in 1985.[30] In 1987 Modi helped organise the BJP’s campaign in the Ahmedabad municipal election, which the BJP won comfortably; Modi’s planning has been described as the reason for that result by biographers.[65] After L. K. Advani became president of the BJP in 1986, the RSS decided to place its members in important positions within the BJP; Modi’s work during the Ahmedabad election led to his selection for this role, and Modi was elected organising secretary of the BJP’s Gujarat unit later in 1987.

Mr. Modi rose within the party and was named a member of the BJP’s National Election Committee in 1990, helping organise L. K. Advani’s 1990 Ram Rath Yatra in 1990 and Murli Manohar Joshi’s 1991–92 Ekta Yatra (Journey for Unity).

On 3 October 2001 he replaced Patel as Chief Minister of Gujarat, with the responsibility of preparing the BJP for the December 2002 elections.[76] On 7 October 2001, Modi was administered the oath of office. On 24th February 2002 he entered the Gujarat state legislature by winning a by-election to the Rajkot – II constituency, defeating Ashwin Mehta of the INC by 14,728 votes, which enabled him to take office
