As the Chairman, the Deputy Chairman is also elected by the council itself from amongst its members. The election of a Deputy Chairman shall be held on such date as the Chairman may fix and the Secretary-General shall send to every member notice of this date. The Deputy Chairman performs the duties of the Chairman’s office when it is vacant. He also acts as the Chairman when the latter is absent from the sitting of the council. In both cases, he has all the powers of the Chairman. As enumerated in Article 112(3) of the Constitution of India, the salaries and allowances of the Chairman and the Deputy chairman are charged on the Consolidated Fund of India (Schedule 2 of Indian constitution). It is the Deputy Speaker (Not deputy chairman) who has one special privilege, that is, whenever he is appointed as a member of a parliamentary committee, he automatically becomes its chairman. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Cancel the best answer Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
