Finance Minister P Chidambaram earlier this week asked the regulators to maintain a strict vigil on the volatility in stock markets on the day of poll results.
While market authorities have been already monitoring stock movements very closely since last few days, which saw markets surging to record highs on the back of exit poll and other predictions, they are now mainly focusing on tackling any possible shocks tomorrow and on Monday.
The counting of votes for 543 Lok Sabha constituencies will begin tomorrow at 8 am, while clear trends are likely to emerge by afternoon and final results may keep coming out till late evening.
Exit polls show BJP-led NDA is set to form the government after votes are counted tomorrow.
The markets would open as per their normal time at 9 am and close at 3.30 pm, leaving scope for impact of the results on Monday as well after weekly trading holidays on Saturday and Sunday.
