Speaking to the media he said that there will be approximately 10 lakh polling stations in this Lok Sabha Elections as compared to 9 lakh polling stations in 2014.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) on Sunday announced dates for Lok Sabha elections in Punjab. The elections to the world's largest democracy will be held for 543 seats on almost 10 lakh polling booths across the country, with around 90 crore voters ready to exercise the franchise.

Since the last phase of polling will take place only on May 19, there is no scope for announcing even the exit poll results.

The polling dates over the seven phases are April 11, April 18, April 23, May 6, May 12, and May 19.

With the announcement of polls, the Model Code of Conduct will come into effect from this evening bringing political advertising, campaigning and general conduct of political parties and leaders under the EC's scrutiny.

Elections to state assemblies of Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Sikkim and Odisha will be held simultaneously with the elections to the Lok Sabha, said the CEC, adding that a separate notification will be issued on assembly polls.

Since the Jammu and Kashmir Assembly has been dissolved, the EC is bound to hold fresh polls there as well within a six-month period, which will end in May.
