The limit for door to door campaigns has also been raised. 20 instead of 10 persons, excluding security personnel, will now be allowed for door to door campaigns.

The election commission has granted relaxation for indoor meetings as well. A maximum of 500 people (up from the existing 300) or 50% of the capacity of the hall are now allowed.

The Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra said that while deliberating the relaxations, the practicality of implementation of orders by field level functionaries should be ensured in the wake of the prevailing situation.
