Solution

The correct option is C
Immediately after the announcement of the election schedule by the Election Commission.
Explanation: The Model Code of Conduct (MCC) was a set of rules agreed to by all the political parties in 1968. The Election Commission first effectively put to use the MCC in the year 1991 to ensure fair elections and a level playing field. The Election Commission normally announces the schedule of elections in a major press conference a few weeks before the formal process is set in motion. The Model Code of Conduct for guidance of candidates and political parties comes immediately into effect after such an announcement.
