Indian premier Narendra Modi is set to appoint a new defence today, in a major cabinet expansion aimed at speeding up promised economic reforms, after storming to power in May.

Manohar is tipped to take the defence ministry after resigning yesterday, as chief minister of the resort coastal state of Goa.

Parrikar's likely appointment would ease the burden on Arun Jaitley, who has been juggling both the key defence and finance ministries while battling ill-health.

Modi's slim cabinet of 23 ministers, including the premier, is expected to see a handful of new faces while some of the 22 junior ministers of state could also be elevated to full cabinet rank.
