The polls to the Rajya Sabha, which will have 58 vacancies in April, were held on Friday.
For the 58 Rajya Sabha seats to be filled, 33 candidates from 10 states have been unanimously elected.
The results of the anticipated election to 25 seats of the Rajya Sabha have started pouring in from across the country.
The counting for Rajya Sabha elections for 25 seats is currently underway across six states - Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal, Karnataka, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh and Telangana. The polling began on Friday morning.
Meanwhile, after initially being put on hold, the counting has also started in Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka. It was put on hold in UP after SP-BSP filed a complaint against the two MLAs who cross-voted.
Counting began only after the Election Commission gave its clearance after some parties raised objections over cross-voting. Though the ruling BJP is confident of shoring up its numbers in the Rajya Sabha, two seats - in Uttar Pradesh and Karnataka - have emerged as prestige battles for the party.
