We are approaching the largest democratic elections in the history of humanity. From April 7 to May 12 around 815 million voters are expected to go to 9,30,000 polling stations to exercise their political choice to elect the members for the 16th Lok Sabha. This nine phase federal elections will also coincide with state level assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Haryana, Maharashtra, Odisha and Sikkim. This election season will see political parties spending more than 30, 000 crores (more than US $5 billion, as per a CMS study).
