The process of filing nomination papers too started with the release of by-election notification.
However, none of the candidates from any political party filed nomination paper today, said Chief Electoral Officer, Ashwini Bhagat.
The last date for filing nomination paper is March 21, papers will be reviewed on March 22 and March 24 is the last date for withdrawing nomination.
The by-election will be held on April 9 from 7 am to 6 pm, Bhagat said.
