Delhi High Court dismisses plea to stop use of EVMs

The Delhi High Court dismissed on Tuesday, a petition seeking direction to the Election Commission of India (ECI) to stop the use of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) and instead return to ballot paper.

A bench of Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh rejected the petition filed by advocate C.R. Jaya Sukin slapping a fine of 10,000 ₹ saying it was akin to a “publicity interest litigation”.

The bench said that the petition was filed without doing any research on the working of the EVMs and lacked material to justify the plea. It said the EVMs were approved by the ECI and Parliament.

The High Court, however, said Mr. Sukin may approach it again after conducting research and making proper averments.
