~The Hyderabad High Court in October 2018 directed the Andhra Pradesh government to conduct panchayat elections within three months.

*Elections for GPs in Maharashtra are to be scheduled on different dates as per their respective tenure of Five year.

@Elections could not be held as the Puducherry Government does not have the desired information on OBC population required to decide the seats to be reserved for them.  Currently the matter is pending in the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India.

#Elections in respect of newly created/carved out Districts will be held later.
