Answer

Correct Option is 1 and 3

Central Information Commission was established by the Central Government in 2005 under the provisions of the Right to Information Act (2005). It is a statutory body and not a constitutional body. The President can remove the Chief Information Commissioner or any Information Commissioner if 1. He is adjudged an insolvent 2. He has been convicted of an offense which (in the opinion of the President) involves moral turpitude. Hence statement 2 is incorrect. 3. He engages during his term of office in any paid employment outside the duties of his office. 4. He is (in the opinion of the President) unfit to continue in office due to infirmity of mind or body. 5. He has acquired such financial or other interest as is likely to affect prejudicially his official functions. Hence statements 1 and 3 are correct.
