The counting of votes will begin tomorrow, three days after the end of a nearly month-long polling to elect a new Lok Sabha.
The Election Commission has put in place an elaborate arrangement for the counting of votes, which would start at 0800 hours tomorrow, both in the Lok Sabha and assembly elections.
The exercise would take place at 4,260 counting halls in 1,080 centres across the country and would be managed by nearly 60,000 personnel.
Elections are held to 543 seats of the 545-member Lok Sabha, as two members are nominated from the Anglo-Indian community. A party or a coalition needs to have at least 272 seats in the Lok Sabha to stake claim to form a government.
