Correct Option is 2 and 3

Articles 315 to 323 in Part XIV of the constitution Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is the central recruiting agency in India. It is an independent constitutional body as it has been directly created by the Constitution. The President can remove the chairman or any other member of UPSC if 1. He is adjudged an insolvent (has gone bankrupt) 2. He during his term of office engages in any paid employment outside the duties of his office. 3. He is, in the opinion of the president, unfit to continue in office by reason of infirmity of mind or body. Under the term "misbehaviour" the president can remove the chairman or any another member of UPSC but only after referring the matter to the Supreme Court for an enquiry. If the Supreme Court upholds the cause of removal and advises so, the president can remove the chairman or a member. Under the provisions of the Constitution, the advice tendered by the Supreme Court in this regard is binding on the president. During the course of an enquiry by the Supreme Court, the president can suspend the chairman or the member of UPSC. The term misbehaviour includes 1. Being concerned or interested in any contract or agreement made by the Government of India or the government of a state. 2. Participates in any way in the profit of such contract or agreement or in any way. Hence statement 1 is incorrect and statement 2 and 3 are correct.
