Kolkata: The West Bengal government is keen on holding Kolkata Municipal Corporation elections in March, said a senior State Election Commission (SEC) official on Tuesday.

Civic polls were scheduled to be organised in April 2020, but the state government postponed the process owing to the COVID- 19 pandemic.

“The state government informed us that it is ready to hold KMC polls once the Election Commission of India publishes the final electoral roll and the state election commission adopts it.

After that, the state will be able to hold the polls in four to six weeks, provided the COVID situation doesn”t worsen,” the SEC official said.

The ECI may publish its electoral roll on January 15, he added.

“So if you calculate four to six weeks, it would be during the first or second week of March,” he explained.

Asked about elections to other municipalities, the official said, “Only information about KMC was communicated.”

Earlier in October, the opposition BJP had met SEC officials and demanded that KMC elections be held before assembly polls.
