The oath-taking ceremony for the ministers was scheduled to take place at 11:30 am on Wednesday.
The ministry expansion is widely seen as a measure to quell growing dissent within the Congress-JDS coalition that threatens the stability of the government.
According to sources, two independent legislators H Nagesh -- Mulabagilu MLA and R Shankar -- Ranebennur MLA, both supporting the coalition government, are expected to be inducted in the ministry.
Currently, there are three ministerial vacancies out of which two are to be filled from the JDS quota and one from the Congress.
