What data is expected?

This data category requires results by constituency / district for all major national electoral contests. Election data informs about voting outcomes and voting process. What are electoral majorities and minorities? How many votes are registered, invalid, or spoilt? To enable highest transparency, the Index assesses polling station data. Data for electoral zones does not suffice. The Index consulted the National Democratic Institute (NDI) to develop this data category. For more information, see the NDI’s Open Elections Data Initiative. We recommend that you consult our methodology section for more information.

Rejected submission because not all required data is available. By-elections (http://eci.nic.in/eci_main1/bye_elec_results_2016.html): general results, registered and rejected votes. As for General Election to Legislative Results, as submitter noted, we can only access general results, by electoral zone (http://eciresults.nic.in/). Data is up to date, available in PDF.

Data doesn't meet the characteristics being assessed but the data that is available can be used with a complying license.
