Supreme Court notice to poll panel on EVMs
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday directed the Election Commission to decide on a petiton seeking provisions for instant verification of votes cast through electronic voting machines (EVMs).
The apex court bench of Chief Justice SH Kapadia, Justice KS Panikar Radhakrishnan and Justice Swatanter Kumar asked the commission to decide within three months on the petition by Nagpur-based Shiv Sena activist Rajindra Satyanarayan Gilda.
Gilda is seeking a provision whereby a device attached to the EVMs issues an acknowledgement slip to the voters, or a screen displays the vote. However, the acknowledgement slip cannot be carried out of the polling booth and has to be deposited in a box.
