UPA has been projected to get 210 to 225 seats in the Lok Sabha elections, way ahead of NDA, according to a major TV channel.

BJP-led NDA is expected to get 180 to 195 seats, according to "final projections" based on a national election study by CNN-IBN in association with newspaper Danik Bhaskar.

Contrary to the general perception, the study said DMK and its allies are set to "sweep" Tamil Nadu getting 47 per cent of the vote share against AIDMK's 34 per cent.

In a similar study released by the channel two days ago, it had projected UPA getting 185-205 seats while the BJP-led NDA was expected to secure 165 to 185 seats. It had given 110 to 130 seats to the Third Front and the Fourth Front between 25 and 35 seats.

'Others' were likely to get 20 to 30 seats, according to earlier figures.

In the latest projections, Congress is also expected to emerge as the single largest party with 158 to 173 seats against BJP, whose tally is put at 132 to 147.

The projections are based on the national election study done by Centre for the Study of Developing Societies (CSDS) across 28 states and the final figures are based on all five rounds.
