The judge of the Supreme Court can be removed from his office by the President on the recommendation of the Parliament. Removal motion is signed by 100 members in case of Lok Sabha and 50 members in case of Rajya Sabha and is to be given to the speaker/chairman if admitted a three-member committee is constituted by the speaker/ chairman to investigate into the charges. If the committee finds a judge to be guilty the house can take up the consideration of the motion and after the motion is passed by each house of Parliament by special majority the President passes an order removing the judge.
