A post sharing the purported schedule of the upcoming 2022 elections in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa is being shared on social media. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.

Claim: Election schedule of the upcoming 2022 assembly elections in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa.

Fact: The election schedule of the upcoming 2022 assembly elections in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa is not yet released. The schedule being shared is actually that of the 2017 assembly elections in these states. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

Search on Election Commission of India website did not yield any results with respect to the schedule of the upcoming assembly elections in 2022. Also, we could not find any news articles stating the release of the election schedule of the upcoming 2022 elections in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa.

The schedule of the 2017 assembly elections held in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa is the same as the one in the post. The dates of nomination, polling dates, and the result date are exactly same as the 2017 schedule.

The assembly elections to UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa are due in the year 2022. The five-year term for most of these state assemblies is going to end in March. The Election Commission of India website gives the list of upcoming elections but doesn’t yet show the election schedule for these states.

To sum it up, the 2017 election schedule is passed off as the election schedule of the upcoming 2022 assembly elections in UP, Manipur, Punjab, Uttarakhand, and Goa.
