The two phase poll will be held on November 28 and December 2 and counting will be held on December 4 and December 6, he said.

Elections in municipal corporations of Bhopal, Jabalpur and Chhindwara have been put on hold owing to pending legal issues. Elections in Morena Municipal Corporation, Maihar and Vidisha municipalities and Bankhedi nagar panchayat will be held after ongoing administrative preparations for elections are resolved, the SEC said.

A total of 100 nagar panchayats go to polls in the first phase while 105 nagar panchayats will go to polls in the second phase, he added. Of the total 378 civic bodies in the state, there are 16 municipal corporations, 98 municipalities and 264 nagar panchayats. A total of 52 of these are in the scheduled areas and would have polls later along with 38 bodies that have fallen 'out of phase' and will also have elections later.

Ten municipal corporations including Indore, Gwalior, Sagar, Satna, Rewa, Singrauli, Dewas, Khandwa, Burhanpur and Ratlam will go to polls on November 28 while Katni Municipal Corporation will have elections on December 2, the SEC said.
