Functions :

(1) Acts as ex-officio Chairman of the Rajya Sabha.
(2) Officiates as President in case of death, resignation or removal of the latter.
.(3) Functions as the President when the President is unable to discharge his functions due to illness, absence or any other cause.

Emoluments :

Vice-President is entitled to a salary of Rs.40,000 per month in his capacity as the Chairman of Rajya Sabha.
