After we published the previous analysis, the Election Commission of India took down their Final turnout data by state and replaced it with provisional nationwide turnout data by state.

Apart from the absurdity of replacing non-detailed final turnout data with even less detailed provisional data after an elected government is sworn in on the basis of the results they published, this data too is not without flaws.

Types of discrepancies and a key to understanding them.

Votes counted and polled don’t match in the provisional data
Votes counted and polled don’t match in the provisional data as well with the total of EVM votes counted in constituencies.
Votes counted and polled match in the provisional data, BUT number of EVM votes counted in state does not match total of EVM votes counted in the constituencies in that state
Votes counted and polled don’t match but EVM votes counted in state match total of EVM votes counted in its constituencies.
