A citizen of India who is of 35 years of age or above may be a presidential candidate.

The presidential candidate should be qualified to become a member of the Lok Sabha and should not hold any office of profit under the government. Certain office-holders, however, are permitted to stand as Presidential candidates. These are:

The current Vice-President.
The Governor of any state.
A Minister of the Union or of any state.

In the event that the Vice-President, a State Governor or a Minister is elected President, he is considered to have vacated his previous office on the date he begins serving as President.
