Now, as the Election Commission has announced the dates and the notification has come, the model of code of conduct has come into action. This is in tune with the wishes of the YCP leaders for conducting the elections to twin Telugu states in a single phase.

In a press conference, chief election commissioner Sunil Arora announced that the electorate size is around 900 million for the 2019 general election.

On April 18, polling will be held in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi-Chikkamagaluru along with Hassan, Chitradurga, Tumakuru, Mandya, Mysuru, Chamarajanagar, Bengaluru rural, Bengaluru north, Bengaluru central, Bengaluru south, Chikkaballapur and Kolar.

India will hold a general election in seven stages starting on April 11, the election commission said on Sunday, in what will be the world's biggest democratic exercise with Prime Minister Narendra Modi likely to benefit from tensions with Pakistan.

The Election Commission of India has ruled out holding the assembly elections in Jammu and Kashmir.

"If that is true, then how could the Lok Sabha polls be held?" Elections, after the dissolution of the state assembly, have to be held in the state before the end of May but Arora said Sunday that polls would not be held in J&K along with the Lok Sabha elections.

The required electronic voting machines and paper trail machines are in place to be deployed in almost 10 lakh poling stations across 543 Lok Sabha constituencies.

- 6th phase polling on 12th May.

"Don't think BJP will benefit" from the seven-phase election, but the "people would suffer, we feel bad about that", said Mr Hakim, who is also a minister in Mamata Banerjee's government. The last date for scrutiny of nomination is March 27 and the last date for withdrawal of nomination is March 29.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the BJP had won a landslide majority to form its government at the Centre after a gap of 10 years.

According to the new rules laid out by the election commission, the candidates are required to give their details of the properties that they hold overseas, aside of the ones that are there in the country in their poll affidavits.
