Question

PM X, elected Y as one of the Council of Ministers based on his qualifications. Y is not a part of any of the two houses, that is Rajya Sabha or Lok Sabha. So can Y remain as a part of the council?
  1. Y can be a member after getting permission from the Supreme Court.
  2. Y cannot be a member of any of the Houses.
  3. Y needs to become a member of either of the two houses within 6 months to be a minister.
  4. Y need not be a member of any of the Houses if he is related to the PM.


Solution

The correct option is C Y needs to become a member of either of the two houses within 6 months to be a minister.
The Prime Minister is free to choose his Council of Ministers. But they must be members of either the Rajya Sabha or Lok Sabha. The president appoints all the ministers on the advice of the prime minister. In case a person is not a Member of Parliament, he/she can also become a minister. In such cases, the person has to become a member of one of the houses within six months.
