Because impeachment of the president requires special majority in both the house of Parliament .So to attain that majority, nominated members are also required.

They do not take part in the election because the election comprises of single transferrable vote,proportional representation and includes all the MLA's and MP's(elected ones)representing their constituencies.Their single transferrable vote is on the behalf of all of us from all the constituencies.Hence,the nominated members do not come in the picture.

@Tarique Waquas : If the nominated members are allowed for election process of President,there may be some sort of favourism towards the voting. Because they were nominated by the President.
Vice President of India's electoral college consists of Member of Parliament of both the houses. Whereas, Presidents electoral college consists of MPs, MLA's of states and UT of Delhi and Pondicherry.
vice pressident of India is elected indirectly by the electrol college same as president of India but there is difference... Vice president of India is elected by the elected as well as nominated members of the both the houses of the Parliament..In this, members of the legislative assemble of the state as well as those who are from UTs are not allowed to pariticipate..... vice presiddent of of India is not a member of either house of the parliament if he/she is the member of any house then he/she has to vacate the seat on the same day he/she elected as Vice president of India
the electoral college for election of VP do not consist members of state legisltature and UT but electoral college for president consist of MLA of all states and MLA of two UTs Delhi and puducherry except nominated members.

  7. Page 10: MEA accepts U.S.use of administered Kashmir' The External Affairs Ministry, in an apparent volte face,accepted that the U.S.s usage of the term "Indian- administered Jammu and Kashmir" was acceptable and "affirms" India's position. MEA spokesperson said, The use of the term 'Indian-administered Jammu and Kashmir' merely affirms our position that Syed Salahuddin has been involved in cross-border terrorism in India".

The few square kilometres of the plateau is witnessing a tense stand-off between detachments of the Indian Army and the People's Liberation Army (PLA) for the past few days.

  9. Among the disputed areas is Doklam (also called Donglang in China), which is just about 90 square kilometres where the present dispute is taking pace. For Chinese to reach the China-Bhutan border posts, Doklam provides an easy way to construct their road, and they have been trying to do so. India has consistently objected to it. Not very far from Doklam is the strategically important Chumbi Valley in the Tibetan region, to which Chinese are now planning to expand their rail connectivity. The disputed area also provides, according to India perspective, a bigger buffer to its sensitive Chicken's Neck, or the Siliguri Corridor, which is an extremely narrow stretch of land that connects the north- eastern region to the rest of India. From the Chumbi Valley it is just a little over 100 kilometres away. Bigger buffer "Maybe 20 years down the line, once we develop our border infrastructure at par with the Chinese, we can be more welcoming of better connectivity and be relaxed about the dispute. Not for now." an ex-army officer with extensive knowledge of the India-China dispute said.
