Explanation:

In the parliamentary government system in India, the principles implied institutionally include:

Members of the Cabinet are Members of the Parliament (statement 1). This means that the ministers who are part of the Cabinet are also elected members of the Parliament.
Ministers hold office till they enjoy confidence in the Parliament (statement 2). This implies that the ministers' tenure is dependent on maintaining the confidence and support of the Parliament.
Cabinet is headed by the Head of the State (statement 3) is not a correct statement. In India, the Cabinet is headed by the Prime Minister, who is the head of the government, not the head of the state. The President of India is the head of the state.
