However, the numbers and figures will only be discussed after voting ends for the seventh and the last phase on Sunday evening when the Election Commission gives the go ahead for airing the exit poll.

An election exit poll, not always known to be correct, is a poll of voters taken immediately after they exit the polling stations. Usually, private surveying firms or institutions working for newspapers and broadcasters ask voters whom they actually voted for and assuming that they have got the correct answers, they predict the result trends. Election predictions based on exit and opinion polls have gained much traction in the past decade with television's reach increasing in India alongside the mushrooming of digital news portals. It is important to also note that predictions sometimes hit the bull's eye (for example, in 2014 Today's Chanakya had projected 340 seats for NDA and 291 for the BJP), and sometimes, pollsters also get it horribly wrong.

The campaigns by different political parties in this election witnessed heated squabbles right from the start. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking re-election and has faced criticism for his performance in the last five years from Opposition, mostly the Congress and several regional parties including Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK), Trinamool Congress (TMC), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and others.

The exit polls results will be announced on 23 May, when the counting will begin by 8 am.
