The reference will be placed before Chief Justice B N Kirpal, who will decide the suitable bench of the apex court to look into the matter, Registrar General R C Gandhi said.
The three-point reference, made under Article 143 of the Constitution, is believed to have raised the following questions:
Under Article 174, an assembly is under constitutional obligation to meet at least once in six months and the gap between two consecutive sittings should never be more than six months.
Article 324 vests the commission with the power of superintendence, direction and control of elections.
President A P J Abdul Kalam had on Monday signed the reference made to him by the government in the wake of the EC's order ruling out assembly polls in Gujarat before November this year.
