Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah cast their votes at 10 am in Parliament. So, 98 MLAs belonging to the DMK and its allies will vote for Meira Kumar.

The people of the Sovereign, Socialist, Secular, Democratic and Republic India do not elect its own president directly.

The electoral college has a vote value of 10.98 lakh and comprises 4,896 electors - elected members of the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha and elected members of legislative assemblies of states and union territories.

The Tripura Assembly has 60 MLAs of which 51 are from the ruling Left Front, six from Trinamool Congress and three from Congress.

Total population, which is defined as per the population registered in the census of 1971, in the state divided by 1000 and for that divided by the total number of MLAs in the state.

Returning officer and principal secretary (Assembly) Pradeep Kumar Dubey told reporters that all preparation for the smooth conduct of polling have been completed. These include 445 Lok Sabha and 194 Rajya Sabha MPs as well as 2,721 MLAs. All MPs have a similar vote value of 708. That translates to 5,49,452 votes.

All elected MPs and member of Legislative Assemblies are eligible to cast their vote to elect the successor of Pranab Mukherjee, who demits office on July 25.

The Opposition's candidate, Meira Kumar, visited Mumbai last month to launch her campaign for the top constitutional post.

The arithmetic in the electoral college favours 72-year-old Kovind, who has received support from several key regional parties outside NDA-fold including Telugu Desam Party, Biju Janata Dal, Telangana Rashtra Samiti, and Janata Dal (U).

In September 2016, the votes of 12 legislators were declared invalid during the Rajya Sabha polls in Haryana, for marking their votes using a pen other than the one provided by the official polling staff. The total votes come at around 527,371 with 48.10 percent of votes, according to different sources and statistics available.

Kovind's victory against Kumar is said to be a foregone conclusion because nearly 40 parties, including many from outside the NDA fold, have pledged to support him.
