EC tells SC: present method of VVPAT counting most suitable

Mar 29, 2019 17:24 IST

The Election Commission on Friday justified the existing system of random counting of VVPAT slips after it was asked by the Supreme Court to give its views on increasing the number of random sample surveys. The poll body currently only verifies VVPAT slips of one randomly selected booth in a constituency. The top court had asked for the EC's views following a plea by 21 political parties to randomly verify at least 50 per cent of votes using VVPATs.
