Prime Minister Narendra Modi assumed office today, a day after being sworn-in by President Pranab Mukherjee.
Modi was received at the South Block office of the PMO by newly appointed Principal Secretary Nripendra Mishra and some other officials.
As soon as he entered office, he paid obeisance to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi by offering flower tributes to his portrait.
However, even before assuming charge, Modi had already begun official work last night by holding a meeting with top officials.
Soon after he was sworn-in as prime minister, Modi sought the support, blessings and active participation of the people to take India's development journey to newer heights.
"Together we will script a glorious future for India," he said in his first message on the revamped PMO website.
"Let us together dream of a strong, developed and inclusive India that actively engages with the global community to strengthen the cause of world peace and development," he added.
