Samajwadi Party Rajya Sabha MP and former actress Jaya Bachchan was disqualified and a similar petition seeking to unseat another high profile member Amar Singh has been filed before the Election Commission.

Bringing to a close the proceedings on a petition filed by one Madan Mohan, a losing candidate against her in the election from Uttar Pradesh, the EC has recommended Bachchan's disqualification on the ground that she was holding an office of profit -- Chairperson of UP Film Development Board.

Under the Constitution, the President decides whether a sitting member has incurred disqualification in consultation with the EC.

Article 102 (1)(a) bars an MP from holding any office of profit under the government of India or in any state other than an office declared by Parliament by law not to disqualify its holder.

Legal experts say that the President is bound by the EC recommendation, which is notified in the official gazette.
