    Telangana Chief Electoral Officer Vikas Raj announced that vote counting will begin at 8 am on Sunday. The counting will start with postal ballots and then move on to EVM votes. If the postal ballot counting takes longer than 8.30 am, the EVM counting will begin simultaneously.

    Each counting center will have 14 tables, but more tables will be arranged if there are more voters in a particular constituency. Each table will have a counting supervisor, a micro observer, and two counting staff, along with representatives from the contesting candidates. The results will be declared after a thorough scrutiny and in the shortest possible time.

    In response to complaints of rigging by some parties, Vikas Raj assured that web-casting footage is available at many polling stations. If anything suspicious is found, the observers and returning officers will take appropriate action.
