The 2024 Lok Sabha elections in India began on April 19 and will take place over a 44-day period, concluding on June 1. This major political event occurs every five years and is crucial for most Indians due to its potential impact on various aspects of their lives, including their savings and investments. The outcome of the election can influence economic policies and market sentiments, which are pivotal for the country's future direction. Given the wide-ranging influence of the elections, many people closely follow the process and anticipate the results.

In general election years, financial markets often experience positive trends, as historically, they have provided good returns during these periods. The past four general elections, in particular, have seen markets deliver double-digit returns. However, a potential downside is that these gains may already be priced in ahead of the current election cycle. This means that as the election approaches, the scope for further market gains could be limited, as much of the anticipated positive impact might already be factored into current market prices. Investors should be mindful of these dynamics when making investment decisions during an election year.
