Expenses on publicising info about criminal cases against candidate will be counted as poll expenditure: ECThe Election Commission has said that the costs incurred on publicizing information about the criminal cases against a candidate will be counted as part of poll expenditure following the Supreme Court directive. 

The expenses will be borne by the candidate and the political parties. There is no limit on the party election expenditure -- for Assembly polls, the cap on expenses by the candidates is between 20 to 28 lakh rupees. 
The commission further said if after the nomination, the status of the criminal case changes, it will be open to the candidate to notify the revised status to the Returning Officer and publish the revised status.
