    Option 3 is the right answer.

    In India, the President is empowered with the power to pardon. If this power of President is subjected to judicial review it would be a clear cut encroachment of the judiciary in the executive and the Separation of Powers is defeated. Since the power of pardon is one of those powers of the President that makes his position strong, it depicts that his position is more than a rubber stamp in Indian Constitution. He is the only person who can grant pardon, remit or commute the vigorous punishments related to death penalty and others.
