Commencing at daybreak, the programming will start at 6AM on the channels and will aim to bring the fastest, first reactions and a 360-degree view throughout the day until the final results are declared. Offering a combination of live reportage, real-time updates on seat tally, the Counting Day coverage on both the channels will keep a close track of the trends and provide in-depth analysis and implications of the results.
