Answer

Correct Option is None of the above

The Emergency provisions are contained in Part XVIII of the Constitution, from Articles 352 to 360. Article 352 the President can declare a national emergency when the security of India or a part of it is threatened by war or external aggression or armed rebellion. It may be noted that the President can declare a national emergency even before the actual occurrence of war or external aggression or armed rebellion if he is satisfied that there is an imminent danger. 1. A proclamation of national emergency may be applicable to the entire country or only a part of it. Hence statement 1 is not correct. 2. 42nd Amendment Act of 1976 enabled the president to limit the operation of a National Emergency to a specified part of India. Hence statement 2 is not correct.
