In Vishwamitra, the regent (Hindi: राज-प्रतिनिधि) is a person who exercises the official functions of the monarch of Vishwamitra when the monarch is incapable of functioning or during a period of interregnum.

Appointment

Federal throne

According to the Monarchy Established document signed on 4 June 2020, it was declared that if the monarch is to leave the nation or is unable to perform their duties for whatever reason, they may or may not appoint any regent or council of regency. The monarch can also appoint a regent to act on their behalf for various issues related to the nation.

Following the established of the monarchy on 8 June 2020, Tanishkaa Patranabish was named as the first monarch of Vishwamitra by the outgoing council of state. However, soon after ascending to the throne, she named the Rajpramukh of Purvanchal, Dhrubajyoti Roy to act as the deputy monarch and perform his duties accordingly as the regent ad-interim and to represent her on all national and global platforms. However, following her abdication on 29 July, Dhrubajyoti Roy ascended to the throne as the second monarch of the nation.

On account of the absence of the Rashtradhyaksh, the Deputy Rashtradhyaksh is the first in the line of succession to the throne and shall discharge their duties as the acting Rashtradhyaksh until the return or resumption of throne by the holder. The Rashtradhyaksh may also appoint their deputy as the regent for a short period of time when they deem necessary. If there is an absence of both the Rashtradhyaksh and Deputy Rashtradhyaksh, then the Chairman of the Conference of Rulers, acting as the senior-most of the other provincial monarchs (Rajpramukhs) shall assume the throne as the Regent for a period as deemed necessary.

Provincial thrones

The Constitution of Vishwamitra does not allow a simultaneous reign as both the Rashtradhyaksh (federal monarch) of Vishwamitra and as monarch of the Rashtradhyaksh's native state (deemed absent on the provincial throne). When a provincial monarch is chosen to be the monarch of Vishwamitra, they need to appoint a regent to act of their behalf for a period of time they serve as the monarch of the nation.
