Plz note that Viceroy's Executive Council had different type of members like ex officio member, nominated official, nominated non official, elected etc Here this act is talking about nominated non official members while SP Sinha was the first Ex-Officio member of Council :) Hope it is clear now, Simply read in modern Indian history you'll get the things there :) Plz watch the course and ask all your queries here :) I'll happy to reply :)
