SC seeks EC's reply on increasing size of VVPAT sample survey

FILE PIC: PTI
Supreme Court has directed the Election Commission to reply by this Thursday if it can increase the number of VVPAT sample survey from one in each assembly segment at present for the upcoming general and assembly elections. 
   
A bench comprising Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Deepak Gupta sought the response of the poll panel by 4 PM Thursday and directed it to appraise whether a number of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) can be increased for the satisfaction of the electorate. 
 
The bench indicated that it wanted the number of VVPAT to be increased, saying it was not the question of casting aspersions rather it was a matter of satisfaction.

The bench has now posted for 1st April, the plea of 21 opposition leaders, led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, seeking that VVPAT slips of at least 50 per cent voting machines in each assembly seat be checked randomly in the Lok Sabha elections.
