Election Commission will notify the Rajya Sabha elections for 3 vacancies from Kerala (that will arise later this month on the retirement of the MPs) prior to the expiry of the term of these 3 MPs i.e. before April 21, 2021, #KeralaHighCourt told.

Adv Deepu Lal Mohan (for EC) says that the reason why HC was moved was because the earlier notification was kept in abeyance.

A revised election schedule will be issued. At this moment, it cannot be speculated when it will be scheduled, but it will be before April 21, he adds
Senior Advocate CS Vaidyanathan, for the petitioner, argues that the Election Commission must disclose why the initial date for the Rajya Sabha elections was reconsidered in the first place and what reference of the Law Ministry was involved.
