Correct Option is None of the above

Articles 79 to 122 in Part V of the Constitution deal with the organisation, composition, duration, officers, procedures, privileges, powers and so on of the Parliament. Under the Constitution, the Parliament of India consists of three parts the President, the Council of States and the House of the People. The Parliament has laid down the following additional qualifications in the Representation of People Act (1951). 1. He must be registered as an elector for a parliamentary constituency. This is same in the case of both, the Rajya Sabha and the Lok Sabha. The requirement that a candidate contesting an election to the Rajya Sabha from a particular state should be an elector in that particular state was dispensed within 2003. In 2006, the Supreme Court upheld the constitutional validity of this change. Hence statement 1 is incorrect. 2. He must be a member of a scheduled caste or scheduled tribe in any state or union territory if he wants to contest a seat reserved for them. However, a member of scheduled castes or scheduled tribes can also contest a seat not reserved for them. Hence statement 2 is incorrect.
