New Delhi, June 10: Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has consistently stressed the mantra of 'minimum government, maximum governance', disbanded four standing committees of the Cabinet on Tuesday. This came ten days after he scrapped all Group of Ministers (GoMs) and Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs).

According to a statement issued by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO), the functions of the Cabinet Committee on Management of Natural Calamities will henceforth be taken over by the Committee under the Cabinet Secretary whenever the situation demands an action.
