The Senior Minister (abbreviation: SM) is a political office in the State of Vishwamitra. Previous holders of this office have served as either the Prime Minister or as the former Deputy Prime Minister. Senior Ministers are given a higher order of precedences after the Deputy Prime Minister and rank above the Cabinet Ministers of the Union.

It was created on 14 July 2019, by then President Dhrubajyoti Roy on the advice of the Prime Minister Tanishkaa Patranabish under the Government Ministries Act, 2019. Serving Deputy Prime Ministers in the cabinet, Bishnu Chetry and Arnab Sil were appointed as Senior Ministers. From it's creation to September 2019, the Senior Ministers used to rank above the Deputy Prime Ministers, but after that, they ranked below the Deputy Prime Ministers.

The office was unofficially used from 13 May 2018 to 12 October 2018 by Asmi Patranabis in her capacity as Vice-President of the Council of Ministers. Since establishment in 2019, the office was discontinued to be used from 16 November 2019 until 13 May 2020.

The office is currently vacant since 21 October 2021, and was last held by Princess Anoushkaa until 21 October 2021.
