New Delhi: A hung parliament with the NDA overtaking UPA has been projected in the India TV-Times Now-C Voter seat projections made after a State of the Nation survey done this month (October).

The survey projects NDA getting 186 seats, compared to UPA which is projected to get 117 seats, a huge downswing from the 259 seats that the ruling combine got in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections. In 2009, the NDA had secured 159 seats.

The key to power at the Centre will be held by "Others", consisting of mainly regional parties, who are projected to get 240 out of a total of 543 Lok Sabha seats, says the C Voter survey.
