7. Removal of Members from office in certain circumstances

The Central Government in consultation with the Chief Justice of India may remove from office any Member, who-


(a) has been adjudged an insolvent; or


(b) has been convicted of an offence which, in the opinion of the Central Government, involves moral turpitude; or


(c) has become physically or mentally incapable of acting as such Members; or


(d) has acquired such financial or other interest as is likely to affect prejudicially his functions as a Member; or


(e) has so abused his position as to render his continuance in office prejudicial to the public interest:


Provided that nothing contained in this rule shall apply to a Chairman who is Judge of a High Court:


Provided further that where a Member is proposed to be removed on any of the grounds specified in clauses (b) to (c), the Members shall be informed of the charges against him and given a reasonable opportunity of being heard in respect of those charges
