The West Bengal State Election Commission does not deal with General Elections to the Lok Sabha (Parliament). Such Elections are conducted by the Election Commission of India. Thus, any complaint, suggestion or any other communication regarding the same may be addressed either to the Election Commission of India or the Chief Electoral Officer, West Bengal.

The State Election Commission generally announces the Schedule of elections in a Press Note a few weeks before the formal process is set in motion.The Model Code of Conduct for guidance of the candidates and political parties comes into effect immediately after such announcement.
