Last Updated : 31 Jan 2022 04:23:55 PM IST


The Election Commission on Monday further extended the ban on physical rallies and roadshows to February 11 for the upcoming Assembly elections in five states but gave relaxation in the number of people allowed at meetings and campaigning.

The EC has given a few relaxations to parties, giving the nod to physical public meetings in designated open spaces with a maximum of 1,000 people (instead of 500) or 50% of the capacity of the ground or the prescribed limit set by SDMA, whichever number is the least, from February 1.
“The Commission has also enhanced the limit for door to door campaigns. Instead of 10 persons, now 20 persons, excluding security personnel, will be allowed for door to door campaigns. Other instructions on door to door campaigns will continue. The Commission has now granted relaxation for the political parties to the extent that indoor meetings of a maximum of 500 persons (instead of existing 300 persons) or 50% of the capacity of the hall or the prescribed limit set by SDMA is allowed,” the EC said in a statement on Monday.
