Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 2

National Emergency (Article 352) A proclamation of emergency may be revoked by the President at any time by a subsequent proclamation. Such a proclamation does not require parliamentary approval. 1. President must revoke a proclamation if the Lok Sabha passes a resolution by a simple majority disapproving of its continuation. This safeguard was introduced by the 44th Amendment Act of 1978. Rajya Sabha has no role in revocation. 2.44th Amendment Act of 1978 also provided that, if one-tenth of the total number of members of the Lok Sabha give written notice to the Speaker (or to the president if the House is not in session), a special sitting of the House should be held within 14 days for the purpose of considering a resolution disapproving the continuation of the proclamation. Hence statements 1 and 2 are correct and statement 3 is incorrect.
