2009 Indian general elections[edit]

The CVoter exit poll projections for India TV showed the UPA with 189–201 seats. It gives the Congress 149–155, the DMK between 9 and 13, the NCP 12–16 and the Trinamool between 12 and 16. The poll showed the BJP-led Front getting between 183 and 195 seats. It includes the BJP (140–146), the JD (U) 17–21.[70] In the end, in Indian general election, 2009, UPA got 262 (Congress – 206) and NDA 159 (BJP – 116).

2004 Indian general elections[edit]

The CVoter exit poll projections for Star News predicted NDA getting between 267–279 and Congress+Allies between 169–181.[71][72] In the end, in Indian general election, 2004, Congress+Allies(UPA) got 218 (Congress 145) and NDA got 181 (BJP – 138).

2014 Indian general elections[edit]

CVoter carried out Tracking polls for India's leading News Networks Times Now; India Today & India TV. A television news channel claimed in a sting operation conducted by it that some of the agencies which conduct opinion polls before elections are willing to tweak their findings for money.[73] It included global giants like Ipsos and CVoter. Initially India Today Group suspended its CVoter contract.[74][75] However the promoters of "News Express" channel called "Sai Prasad Group"[76][77][78][78] itself got seriously criticised for a string of money laundering cases pursued by multiple Government probing agencies.[79][80] After series of inquiries and audits; the allegations were found animated and politically motivated as the Channel was supported by the ruling political party which was shown trailing badly in these opinion polls[citation needed]. The CVoter Exit Polls were duly carried by India TV and Time Now and all major regional networks of India[citation needed].
