Lok Sabha Election 2024: Will this year's Lok Sabha election be the most expensive in the world? | leader

According to an estimate, the eighteenth Lok Sabha election to be held in the country is likely to be the most expensive election ever in the country as well as in the world. Center for Media Studies (CMS), an organization that monitors political spending, has predicted that more than Rs 1.2 lakh crore will be spent in the upcoming elections. About 1.2 lakh crore rupees were spent in the 2020 presidential election in America. If the 'CMS' prediction that more than this amount will be spent in the upcoming elections in India is true, it will naturally be the most expensive election in the world.

Numbers speak

60 thousand crore rupees (both declared and undisclosed) was spent in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
The Election Commission has set an expenditure limit of Rs 95 lakh for each candidate.
A candidate will actually spend an average of Rs 5.75 crore on 20 days of campaigning.
Expenditure of each candidate on 543 seats would be Rs 3,112 crore excluding campaign and advertisement expenses.
220 crore rupees will be spent on one Lok Sabha seat this year.
There are 97 crore voters in the country.
1240 will cost Rs.

  • 'CMS' estimates cost over Rs 1.2 lakh crore
  • The limit is 95 lakhs, in reality each candidate will spend an average of 6 crores
