FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the post, and found it to be false.

With a keyword search, the NM team could not find any media report to corroborate the viral claim. Searching further, we traced an X post by Axis My India, dated April 18, 2024, refuting the viral claim.

The press release states, “With regards to the upcoming 2024 Indian general elections, certain opinion polls are being published using the name of Pradeep Gupta, Axis My India, since the past few days, which are completely false (misleading). This is to inform you all that Axis My India never publishes any kind of pre-poll/opinion poll. We will publish exit polls only after the elections as per ECI guidelines, on June 1 at 6.30 pm.” This confirms that the opinion poll is fake.

The Chairman & Managing Director of Axis My India, Pradeep Gupta, also shared the press release on Twitter on April 18, 2024, refuting the claims.

Hence, we can conclusively say that the viral opinion poll by Axis My India is fake.
