It is believed that on Shab-e-Barat, which comes 15 days before the holy month of Ramadan or Ramzan, God decides the fortunes of men and women for the coming year.
According to the Islamic calendar, Ramadan month will begin from the first week of May 2019.
The final date for the start of Ramadan and Eid in India will be decided based on moon sighting.
The Election Commission (EC) may announce the poll dates after the holy month of Ramzan is over and before the Amarnath Yatra begins on July 1.
Muslim voters - who form nearly 15 per cent of the country's electorate - could be subjected to hardship as three polling phases clash with the holy month of Ramzan.
A political row erupted over dates for seven-phase Lok Sabha elections 2019 that are coinciding with Ramzan.
