Delhi Exit Poll Result 2020 Date and Time: Fate of 70-member Assembly to be extrapolated at 6.30 pm tomorrow

Delhi Exit Poll Result 2020 Date: As the campaign in Delhi comes to end, Delhi residents are eagerly awaiting the final outcome to the long-drawn acrimonious electoral battle. However, the results for the 8 February election will not be out until 11 February (Tuesday) when Election Commission appointed officials will count the votes in a tightly guarded exercise, across all the 70 Assembly constituencies. However, in the meantime, exit poll surveys do provide a rough idea of the voting trend before the final results are out.

Exit polls to 70 Assembly constituencies in the National Capital will be announced on Saturday (8 February) after 6.30 pm. This is because the Election Commission mandates all media houses and pollsters to hold back the survey data and their extrapolations until such time that the last vote has been cast. This is done to ensure that the predicted trends do not influence voter behaviour in any way. Many pollsters, including Chanakya, IPSOS and Republic TV-Jan Ki Baat polls, are expected to publish the Delhi Assembly Election 2020 exit poll as soon as the voting ends.

The Election Commission had issued a notification restricting media to conduct or publish any exit poll during Assembly elections in Delhi on 8 February. The ban will be on polling day between 8 am to 6.30 pm, the commission said.

In a detailed statement, the Election Commission said: "Election Commission of India, in exercise of the powers under sub-section (1) of Section 126 of the Representation of the Peoples Act, 1951 has notified the period between 8 am and 6.30 pm on 8 February 2020 (Saturday) as the period during which conducting any exit poll and publishing or publicizing the result of exit poll by means of the print or electronic media or in any other manner shall be prohibited in the ongoing General Election to the Legislative Assembly of NCT of Delhi, 2020."

Further, under Section 126(1)(b) of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, displaying any election matter including results of any opinion poll or any other poll survey, in any electronic media, would be prohibited during the period of 48 hours, the EC said.

Delhi, or the National Capital Territory (NCT) of India, is a large metropolitan area in India. Delhi is the fifth most populous city in the world and the largest city in India area-wise. Delhi has an estimated 2016 population of 18.6 million.

The NCT and its urban area are granted the special status of National Capital Region, and this NCR includes neighbouring cities of Baghpat, Alwar, Sonepat, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, Greater Noida, Noida, and nearby towns. The NCR has an estimated population of 24 million, exceeding the Delhi population of 17.8 million in 2014.

Delhi has a rapidly growing population, which was nearly 16.7 million in 2011.
