The decision was taken at the first meeting of the Chief Minister and his new cabinet, who took oath on Wednesday morning. Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the top leaders of the BJP had attended the programme in Shimla, in which Mr Thakur and 10 of his ministers had taken oath.
Mr Thakur, 52, was picked to be the chief minister after PK Dhumal, projected by the BJP for the top post, lost his election. The party had practically swept the election, winning 44 of the state's 68 seats.
In its first meeting, Mr Thakur's cabinet also decided to hold the winter session of assembly from January 9 to 12 in Dharamshala.
It was also decided to review the decisions taken by the previous Congress government of Virbhadra Singh over the last six months. The ministers said the transfer orders that have not been implemented will be put on hold.
The cabinet will adopt the Swarnima Himachal Drishti Patra (Vision Document) of the BJP as a policy document of the state government. It was also decided to continue the interview schedule of medical colleges.
