How can a judge of the Supreme Court be removed?


ANSWER

By the Parliament through impeachment


SOLUTION
The Judges cannot be removed from office by any authority through a normal simple procedure. A judge can be removed by the President only for proved misbehaviour and incapacity. This charge needs to be proved only by a joint address by both Houses of Parliament and supported by a two-third majority of members present and voting.
