The Election Commission said that the nominations for the lone seat of Rajya Sabha by-poll would end on 14th August while the scrutiny of papers would be done on August 16. The last date for withdrawals is August 19.
The polling, if required, would be held between 9 AM to 4 PM on August 26 and the results would be declared the same day.
The seat fell vacant due to the resignation of Samajwadi Party member Neeraj Shekhar, who has now joined the BJP. The term of the seat is up to November 25, 2020.
