According to sources, the exercise has been delayed given the extraordinary situation prevailing because of the Covid-19 pandemic. “Last year, the SRER had taken place from September to November. This year, it will be held from November 15 to December 16 in accordance with the Election Commission guidelines,” an official said.

The publication of draft electoral rolls had taken place in January, followed by the final publication in February.

Currently the distribution of cards is happening at election booths. In some cases, the booth level officers are also making door-to-door trips.
