"One nation one poll" - Critically Analyze

One Nation One Poll (ONOP) - Let us critically analyze it; focusing mostly on the cons of it from the UPSC perspective. Discuss benefits, advantages, implementation etc.

ONOP should have been accepted long back. There are several issues with existing system where people of India have to face the elections every few days. 

Expenditure - Each election requires massive expenditure from the governing bodies. First, the election officers and executives have to be assigned; which mostly come from schools and colleges. Most of the times, this means that there's actual loss of work. 

Moral Code of Conduct and Delays in Government Decisions: Because there is a MCC at least for a month before the actual elections, the government delays decision making. 

Security: Security is deployed at every polling booth; which results into waste of Human Resources who'd otherwise be deployed for other priority services. 

Political parties have to be always figuring out the next strategy: There is no stability and the political parties are always on the toes to strategize their moves. 

I think One Nation one Poll can address all these issues effectively. Political will and consensus is the only thing I think is preventing the implementation of ONOP.
