A.Dear Client,

The grounds for disqualification of a candidate standing for state legislative assembly elections are:
(1) In the first place, you must not hold any office of profit under the Government of India or the Government of any State other than an office declared by the Legislature of the State by law not to disqualify its holder. The various State Legislatures have made laws declaring different offices of profit which will not disqualify a holder of any such office for being chosen as and for being a member of the Legislative Assembly of a State.
(2) In the second place, you must not be of unsound mind and must not stand so declared by a competent court.
(3) In the third place, you must not be an undischarged insolvent.
(4) In the fourth place, you will be disqualified if you are not a citizen of India or you have voluntarily acquired the citizenship of a foreign State or if you are under any acknowledgement of allegiance or adherence to a foreign State. In simple words, you must not be an alien and a foreigner.
(5) And lastly, you must not be disqualified by or under any law made by Parliament.
(b) Constitutional Disqualifications for Membership of the Legislative Assembly of a Union Territory (other than the National Capital Territory of Delhi).
These disqualifications are contained in section 14 of the Government of Union Territories Act, 1963.
