EVMs are tamper-proof, says maker ECIL: Bags ₹2,100 cr order for supply of EVMs, paper trail machines...
Apropos V Rishi Kumar’sreport “EVMs are tamper-proof, says maker ECIL” (The Hindu Business Line, April 28), one finds comfort in the reassuring words of Debashish Das, CMD, Electronic Corporation of India Ltd (a PSU) printed side by side with the report “Uttarkhand High Court sends notice to poll panel over EVM ‘tampering’” filed by PTI.
The message is loud and clear. The EVMs are meant to be tamper-proof and are produced and handled with utmost care. Where allegations surface, government and judiciary are willing to probe and make efforts to make corrections and use higher levels of technology to preserve trust in the system. This is the takeaway from the Election Commission’s move to try Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) units in future elections and the judiciary’s earnest efforts to probe into the allegations brought to notice quickly and in a transparent manner.
