Will make all efforts to implement SC order on VVPAT, says EC

The Election Commission on Monday said it would make all efforts to immediately operationalise and implement the Supreme Court directive on cross-checking results of five EVMs per Assembly segment with VVPAT slips.

While the Opposition had demanded cross-checking of 50% EVM results, the Commission had opposed it citing an expert committee report. After hearing both the sides, the Supreme Court fixed five EVMs per Assembly constituency/segment for verification through VVPAT slips.

Earlier, the EC had fixed one randomly selected polling booth per Assembly constituency for the result matching.
