The counting of votes will be done on April 10 instead of April 8, which was declared earlier.

However, all the schedule of pre-poll activities would remain same and a new council of ADC will be formed on or before April 16, the release stated.

“The casting of votes on April 4 would be inconvenient for a large section of the people, for whom this day has special significance, as the date coincides with the festival of Easter Sunday and has local importance,” the notification stated.
