SC seeks EC response on counting of VVPAT slips

FILE PIC: PIB
The Supreme Court today sought the Election Commission's response on opposition leaders' plea on counting of 50 per cent of Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) slips of the EVMs in each constituency before the declaration of results in the upcoming General Elections. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi also asked the Commission to depute a senior officer to assist the court and posted the matter for next hearing on March 25.

The application was moved by 21 Opposition parties, including the lead petitioner Telugu Desam Party. 

The parties had raised apprehensions in a meeting with the EC in February about the credibility of the Electronic Voting Machine.
