EC Sets up 24-hour EVM Control Room

The Election Commission of India (ECI) has set up a 24-hour EVM Control Room at Nirvachan Sadan to monitor complaints relating to polled electronic voting machines. Any complaints during counting related to EVMs can be informed at control room number 011-23052123.

The move comes a day after 22 parties of the Opposition submitted a memorandum before the Election Commission, requesting that the verification of VVPAT slips of randomly identified polling stations should be done prior to the initiation of counting of votes and not after the completion of last round of counting.

In the memorandum, the parties have also demanded 100 per cent counting of paper slips of VVPATs of all polling stations in an Assembly segment where any discrepancy is found during the VVPAT verification.
