Going against the projections made by most other exit poll surveys, Today's Chanakya has predicted a landslide victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance over the Grand Alliance.

Today's Chanakya has a enviable record of belying all other exit poll predictions and coming up with credible surveys in the past. 

Most other exit polls for the Bihar election  indicated a pitched battle between the BJP-led NDA and the JDU-RJD-Congress Alliance (Mahagathbandan), with the projection being that the Grand Alliance had the edge over the NDA.

The five-phase Bihar elections concluded on Thursday, 5 November. The overall voter turnout for the state assembly polls was recorded at 56.47% from 243 constituencies.

The fifth phase recorded 59.46% voter turnout at the end of the day from 1.55 crore voters across 57 seats. 

Prime Minister Narendra Modi led an aggressive BJP campaign with 30 rallies across the state over last one month. 

Various exit polls have started making predictions as soon as the assembly election ended. We will bring you the live updates below:
