Answer

Correct Option is 1,2 and 3

The Constitution of India has established a permanent and independent body to ensure free and fair elections in the country known as the Election Commission. Article 324 of the Constitution provides that the power of superintendence, direction, and control of elections to parliament, state legislatures, the office of president of India, and the office of vice president of India shall be vested in the election commission. Thus, the Election Commission is an all-India body in the sense that it is common to both the Central government and the state governments. It does not deal with the elections to the Municipalities and Panchayats in the states. Hence, a separate State Election Commission is provided by the Constitution of India. Hence statements 1,2 and 3 are correct.
