Electronic Voting Machines are tamper-proof: CEC Sunil Arora

Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora has said that Electronic Voting Machines, EVM, are tamper-proof and it is high time that all rumour mongering about possibility of tampering it in any way, be stopped immediately.

He said that EVM machines are in use for more than two decades, and on request from political parties, use of VVPAT machines have been started.

He added that there could be occasional mal-functioning of some EVMs here and there, but that could not be called tampering. 

Speaking to media in Ranchi today, he said that all political parties have been asked to appoint their Booth Level Agents in Jharkhand so that there are no scope of any doubts about any possible manipulation.

He said that all EVM machines in Jharkhand will have verifiable VVPAT machines and the VVPAT record would be preserved for five years for any possible verification. 

Our Ranchi Correspondent reports that a 14 Member team of Election Commission was in Ranchi for two days holding meetings with all concerned senior officers and political parties for conducting free and fair elections in the upcoming General Election.
