    no it doesn’t implies that. Removal of different office bearer are clearly mentioned in the constitution. for e.g. upsc member , ec , attorney general etc .AG’s removal process is not clearly define in the constitution.

    Usually submission of resignation would be to an higher authority than the current position the person is holding. But in the cases 1,6 and 8 this is not so. Is this only for administrative convenience or is there any other deeper reason?

    Sir…when can we expect mains result?

  • Simplex

    Gogo bhai.

    Warrant under his hand and seal means: appointment letter signed by the prez. In other cases he may delegate his power to make appointment, but where the constitution makes such phrase, it must be understood as : Warrant: authority + Seal: emblem and sign, meaning thereby “in person” by the president exercising authority conferred by the Constitution of India.

    I hope was able to make the point clear. 🙂
