In accordance with Election Commission of India (ECI) directives, essential facilities have been arranged at each polling station, including ramps for disabled access, shaded areas for relief from the heat, waiting rooms, drinking water facilities, medical kits, and ORS packets. Additionally, transportation services will be provided for senior citizens to and from the polling stations.
