Correct Option is 1 and 2

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. Articles 315 to 323 in Part XIV of the Constitution contain provisions regarding the composition, appointment, and removal of members along with its independence, powers, and functions. The Constitution has made the following provisions to safeguard and ensure the independent and impartial functioning of the UPSC 1. The entire expenses including the salaries, allowances, and pensions of the chairman and members of the UPSC are charged on the Consolidated Fund of India. Thus, they are not subject to the vote of Parliament. 2. The chairman or a member of the UPSC can be removed from office by the president only in the manner and on the grounds mentioned in Constitution. 3. The chairman of UPSC is not eligible for further employment in the Government of India or a state. Hence statements 1 and 2 are correct. 4. A member of UPSC (on ceasing to hold office) is eligible for appointment as the chairman of UPSC or a State Public Service Commission (SPSC), but not for any other employment in the Government of India or a state. 5. The chairman or a member of UPSC is not eligible for reappointment to that office (thus not eligible for the second term). Hence statement 3 is incorrect.
