sir, this means--- 1) for impeachment of president we require=== a majority passed by 50% of total membership of the house + 2/3rd majority of total membership. 2) whereas for removal of SC/HC Judge or CEC or CAG we require=== a majority passed by 50% of total membership + 2/3rd of present & voting please please clarify if this is correct interpretation...
