New Delhi: In a much-anticipated but limited reshuffle in the Indian Union Cabinet, P Chidambaram was on Tuesday made the Finance Minister and his portfolio of Home Ministry was given to Sushilkumar Shinde.

In the exercise, necessitated by the exit of Pranab Mukherjee from the Cabinet last month, Corporate Affairs Minister M Veerappa Moily was given the additional charge of Power Ministry, a portfolio held by Shinde so far.
