“Detailed SOPs will be issued, which has to be observed by all stakeholders during the election. I appeal all the public to observe all the guidelines so as to avoid any problem as far as COVID-19 infection is concerned,” he said.

Garg said that the nominations for the election would accepted between February 25 to March 04, 2021 and scrutiny of the applications would be held on March 06.

The election would be held on March 20 and counting on March 22.
