The Elections Commission(EC) may announce the dates of Lok Sabha polls in the first week of March. Reports say that the elections commission is likely to decide the phase and terms of the Lok Sabha election.

The announcement of Lok Sabha polls may depend on the availability of security forces and many other requirements on available dates.

 Since Jammu and Kashmir assembly is dissolved, the EC has to decide and hold new polls within six months in J&K.

The EC can also hold elections in states like Andhra Pradesh, Odisha and Sikkim along with the Lok Sabha elections 2019.

Since the J&k assembly dissolved in November 2018 which originally should have ended on March 16, 2021, the EC may hold elections in J&K along with Lok Sabha elections 2019.
