The Cabinet today approved amendment of the Conduct of the Election Rules, 1961 and revised the limit of election expenditure for incurred by a candidate for Parliamentary Constituencies to Rs.70 lakh in all States except Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Sikkim, Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Chandigarh, Dadra and Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu, Lakshdweep and Puducherry which has been kept at Rs.54 lakh.


This is due to the increase in the number of electors, polling stations as well as the increase in the cost inflation index.


In case of assembly constituencies, the maximum limit has been increased to Rs.28 lakh in all States except Arunachal Pradesh, Goa, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura and Puducherry where it will be Rs.20 lakh.
