BOOM did not find an exit poll by Times Now for the Phase 1 Lok Sabha seats on which voting was conducted on April 11, 2019. Additionally, the Election Commission Of India (ECI) has banned exit polls between April 11, 2019 (first phase of voting) and May 19, 2019 (last phase of voting) till 6.30 pm. BOOM contacted Times Now Editor-in-chief Rahul Shivshankar who denied that the channel had conducted an exit poll. "This is a malicious exercise in fakery. Times Now has not conducted any exit poll. Our channel adheres to the Election Commission’s Code of Conduct," said Shivshankar.
