Delimitation of Parliamentary Constituencies

In Jammu and Kashmir, the election will use boundaries specified in the Delimitation Commission’s Order No. 2 of May 5, 2022. In Assam, boundaries specified in the Election Commission’s Order No. 2 of August 11, 2023, and Corrigendum of November 1, 2023, will apply. No changes have occurred in other states/UTs’ constituency boundaries since the 2009 Lok Sabha Election.

Model Code of Conduct (MCC)

The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) is a set of guidelines outlined by the Election Commission of India to regulate the behavior of political parties and candidates during elections. It covers various aspects such as speeches, meetings, processions, election manifestos, polling, and general conduct, ensuring the fairness of the electoral process.

Effective immediately upon the announcement of the election schedule, the MCC applies to all states/union territories (UTs), candidates, political parties, and the respective state governments. Additionally, it extends to the Union Government, ensuring uniformity and integrity across the electoral landscape.
