30th June 2017 Part-1: Daily News Analysis (in Hindi)
Yes both presidential and vice presidential elections are with secret ballot, because of this party whip doesn't apply. We can see that Mulayam Singh Yadavs vote was not counted in 2012 because he disclosed his vote. Only elected members from both the houses and state legislative assemblies and elected members of legislative assembly of Delhi and Puducherry ( only these two have legislative assembly) participate.

Whip is nowhere mentioned in the Constitution neither in the rules of house, it is just with convention but when there is secret ballot nobody comes who voted for whom so whip can't be applied and parties even don't issue whip in this.
