  • The Election Commission of India (ECI) may reduce the number of election phases. This is anticipated because, the internal security situation has notably improved since 2019, with Jammu and Kashmir adjusting to the abrogation of Article 370, and Maoist insurgency largely confined to the Bastar region in Chhattisgarh. While incidents of political violence persist in West Bengal and ethnic tensions simmer in Manipur, overall internal security remains stable, albeit with concerns about religious radicalisation among minority communities.
