The President can be removed from office by the procedure of impeachment. The charges for impeachment can be filed by both Houses of Parliament. However, a procedure needs to be followed for the filing of the resolution. These are

  • The charges need to be filed only after a notice of 14 days. The notice has to be signed by at least quarter of the total number of members of the House.
  • The resolution then needs to be passed by a majority of at least two-thirds of the total membership of the House.
  • The charges against the President are then to be investigated by the other House, where the President has the right to appear and be represented for the investigation.
  • If the charges against the President are confirmed by two-thirds of the total members of the other House, the President stands removed from office.
