New Delhi, Jan 8 (UNI) A book titled 'Election Atlas of India', which depicts the journey of progression

of Parliamentary Elections since Independence in the context of the changing socio-political and

demographic scenario, was released on Monday at the World Book Fair in New Delhi.

The Atlas unravels statistics behind Parliamentary Elections from the first Lok Sabha (1952) to the

graphs, charts and tonnes of data.

Carrying a Foreword by Former Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi, the book is edited and

In the Foreword, Dr Zaidi, notes: “The Atlas uses statistical data collected and collated at various

and many other consequential factors related to elections. These new parameters and aspects are

depicted in the form of impressive graphs, charts and thematic maps based on GIS technology with

tremendous clarity. The Atlas also highlights historical data about bye-elections in Parliamentary

Constituencies and alteration in constituencies following the delimitations and also during the
