The leaders of the regional grouping SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) countries had marked their presence at Modi's first swearing-in ceremony when he took oath as the prime minister after a massive electoral victory for the BJP.

Leaders of the BIMSTEC nations attended Modi's swearing-in ceremony in 2019 when he took the reins as the prime minister for the second consecutive term. Though the BJP could not get a majority on its own in the recently-held elections as it had expected, the party-led alliance NDA secured 293 seats in the 543-member House. The majority mark in the Lower House is 272.
