An estimated 63.3 per cent turnout was recorded on Sunday in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha polls covering 59 seats spread over seven states, the Election Commission of India said in New Delhi.

The voting percentage may go up after details are received from the states, a Commission official said.

Polling was held on 14 seats in Uttar Pradesh, all 10 seats in Haryana, 8 seats each in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal, seven in Delhi and four in Jharkhand.

Nearly 60 per cent polling was registered in the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi on Sunday, five per cent lower than in the 2014 general election, the Election Commission of India said.

The voting percentage at 6 pm was 59. 8 per cent and it is likely to rise after details are received from the constituencies, an EC official said.

In 2014 Lok Sabha polls, the turnout was 65.1 per cent, he said.

As many as 164 candidates are in the fray, the official said, adding that 1.43 crore voters were eligible to exercise their franchise.
