Paper-trail EVMs in 2019: CEC



Move to enhance transparency

    was first introduced by the Commission in 2013 to enhance transparency
    and increase the electorate’s confidence that their vote goes without

New Delhi, February 23

Polling for the 2019 General Elections will be conducted through paper
trail-based electronic voting machines to “enhance transparency”.
Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Nasim Zaidi also said that voting
through the internet is not on the EC’s agenda in the near future though
it is going to use information and communication technology (ICT) in a
big way to reach the voters in the coming days.
“We have reached a stage where people are demanding 100 per cent
deployment of paper audit trail machine. We have preserved the secrecy
(in this system) as well. Our plan is that by 2019, the whole country
will be covered by paper audit trail machines. The budget for this has
been committed now,” Zaidi said while addressing an international
seminar today.

‘Leveraging Technology for Transparent and Credible Elections’, stressed
that secrecy of voters will be zealously preserved.
While the poll watchdog is taking full advantage of ICT for
“recommending legislation” on providing electronic postal ballot
facility to overseas Indian voters, the CEC said the same confidence
cannot be expressed at present in the context of internet voting owing
to security concerns.
For e-postal ballot, Zaidi said a “safe technology” has been developed
and it is being “validated and tested currently. “Employing internet
voting or online voting is not our horizon in the long term because it
requires serious consideration of challenges posed by technology.
“We have to weigh perceived and actual benefits versus perceived and

voting along with encryption and end-to-end verification of voters are
some of the most important considerations,” he said. — PTI

Shelf-life of 50% EVMs ending, have to buy 14 lakh for 2019: EC



Taking into account
the additional requirements, the EC has sought funds for 13.91 lakh new
EVMs, estimated to cost over Rs 2,000 crore.

The Election Commission (EC) has estimated
that it needs 13.91 lakh new electronic voting machines (EVMs) for the
next Lok Sabha elections due in 2019, as over half the existing EVMs
will complete their 15-year lifespan by then. The government, however,
is yet to sanction the required funds.


Currently, the EC has 17.12 lakh EVMs, of which 9.31 lakh will be
outdated by 2019. Taking into account the additional requirements, the
EC has sought funds for 13.91 lakh new EVMs, estimated to cost over Rs
2,000 crore.


“Approximately 22.50 lakh EVMs (ballot units) and 16.50 lakh control
units will be required for conducting general elections… and
simultaneous elections to various legislative assemblies,” the EC said
in its reply to an RTI plea filed by The Indian Express.


According to the RTI reply, the EC sent its first request to the law
ministry — its administrative ministry — on June 16 last year. “The life
of the EVMs has been estimated at 15 years, and according to this, the
commission has to phase out pre-2006 EVMs in a phased manner,” wrote EC
Secretary K N Bhar in the letter.


Stating that since the total cost would be over Rs 2,000 crore, the
EC suggested that the government may sanction the amount in phases,
starting from 2014-15 to 2018-19.


The EC also sought additional funds for VVPATs (Voter-Verified Paper
Audit Trail) — Rs 714 crore each year from 2014-15 to 2017-18 for
3,12,500 VVPATs every year.


As the law ministry failed to respond, then CEC V S Sampath sent
another letter on December 1. “Since no budget provision has been made
in the first supplementary and considerable time has lapsed, it would
not be possible to procure and make payment for purchase,” he wrote.


The law ministry sent its response on February 6 this year, stating
that the “same may not be considered since the ECI had informed that it
is not possible for them to purchase the EVMs and VVPAT during financial
year 2014-15.”


The law ministry suggested that the demand for provision of funds for 2015-16 and 2016-17 may be submitted later.
Regarding the demand for funds during 2017-18 and 2018-19, Jose Thomas,
director, law ministry, wrote: “In the fast advancement of technology
and the changing scenario, there may be drastic changes in EVMs and also
there may be a remote possibility of introducing Aadhar based voting
system in general elections 2019. Hence, it may not be advisable to
calculate budget provision for the purchase of EVMs etc during the year
2017-18 and 2018-19 at this stage.”


While the EC also demanded separate funds for totalisers (instruments
used for counting of votes), the law ministry wrote: “A policy decision
is yet to be taken by competent authority in this regard. Besides, this
issue is under examination by Law Commission of India as part of
electoral reforms proposals being considered. Demand for fund for the
same will be examined after a decision is taken in the matter.”


On February 25, then CEC H S Brahma sent another letter to the law
ministry stating that funds for new EVMs should be made available during
the next four years.


On August 27, EC officials informed at a meeting of officials of the
law and finance ministries that “the manufacturers would not be in a
position to supply the quantity indicated for the current financial year
due to time constraints”. The law ministry then asked the EC to send a
“revised proposal”.


On September 22, EC Secretary Sumit Mukherjee sent the revised
proposal to the law ministry. Sources said the ministry is yet to send
its response.


EVMs are manufactured by Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL)-Bangalore
and Electronics Corporation of India Limited (ECIL)-Hyderabad.


Taking
into account the additional requirements, the EC has sought funds for
13.91 lakh new EVMs, estimated to cost over Rs 2,000 crore.

Ex CJI did not order for ballot paper system would be brought in. No
such precautionary measure was decreed by the apex court. Ex CJI did not
order that till the time this newer set of about 1300000 voting
machines is manufactured in full & deployed totally any election to
be conducted with these fraud EVMs. All the 80 democracies in the world
who simply done away with fradulent EVMs and are using the paper
ballots. To cover up now we hear of

Shelf-life of 50% EVMs ending, have to buy 14 lakh for 2019

According to the Right To Information (RTI) it is Left to Administrative
Ministry on June 16 last year selected through the fraud EVMs “the life
of the EVMs has been estimated ate 15 years, and according to this, the
commission has to phase out pre-2006 EVMs in a phased manner.”This is
Wrong To Information. The true fact is that the EVMs were tamperable.
Hence Ex CJI SADHASIVAM, shirked its duty & committed a grave error
of judgment by allowing in phased manner Fraud Tamperable EVMs on the
request of CEC SAMPATH because of the Rs1600 crore cost to replace them
and dealt a fatal blow to the Country’s democracy.

Ex CJI did not order for ballot paper system would be brought in. No
such precautionary measure was decreed by the apex court. Ex CJI did not
order that till the time this newer set of about 1300000 voting
machines is manufactured in full & deployed totally in any election
to be conducted with these fraud EVMs. All the 80 democracies in the
world who simply done away with fradulent EVMs and are using the paper
ballots.

With this proof the present CJI must dismiss the Central and all the
state govt. selected by these fraud EVMs and order for fresh elections
and save democracy, liberty, fraternity and equality as enshrined in the
Constitution for peace, welfare and happiness of 99% Sarvajan Samaj.,
i.e., all societies.

Supreme Court asks Election Commission to implement paper trail in EVMs

Supreme Court asks Election Commission to implement paper trail in EVMs

New Delhi:  The
Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Election Commission to introduce in a
phased manner the paper trail in Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) for
the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, saying “it is an indispensable requirement
of free, fair and transparent” polls which will restore confidence of
the voters.

The Supreme Court, which directed the Centre to
provide financial assistance to the poll panel for introduction Vote
Verifier Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) system with the EVMs, said it will
“ensure the accuracy of the voting system” and also help in “manual
counting of votes in case of dispute.”

“The ‘paper trail’ is an
indispensable requirement of free and fair elections. The confidence of
voters in the EVMs can be achieved only with introduction of the paper
trail,” it said.

“EVMs with VVPAT system ensure the accuracy of
the voting system. With an intent to have fullest transparency in the
system and to restore the confidence of the voters, it is necessary to
set up EVMs with VVPAT system because vote is nothing but an act of
expression which has immense importance in democratic system,” the bench
said.

“VVPAT is a system of printing paper trail when the voter
casts his vote, in addition to the electronic record of the ballot, for
the purpose of verification of his choice of candidate and also for
manual counting of votes in case of dispute,” a bench comprising Chief
Justice P Sathasivam and Ranjan Gogoi said.


The
bench asked the Election Commission to introduce VVPAT in EVMs in
gradual stages or geographical-wise in the 2014 general elections.

While
asking the Centre to provide financial assistance, the bench noted the
submissions made by the Election Commission in its affidavit that it has
decided to increase the use of VVPAT units in a phased manner and has
already written to the Ministry of Law and Justice to issue
administrative and financial sanction for procurement of 20,000 units of
VVPAT (10,000 each from M/s BEL and M/s ECIL) costing Rs. 38.01 crore.

The
bench said, “Taking notice of the pragmatic and reasonable approach of
the Election Commission and considering the fact that in general
elections all over India, the Election Commission has to handle one
million (ten lakh) polling booths, we permit EC to introduce the same in
gradual stages or geographical-wise in the ensuing general elections.”



“The
area, state or actual booth(s) are to be decided by the EC and the EC
is free to implement the same in a phased manner,” it said.

The bench passed the order on two similar petitions; one of those petitions was filed by BJP leader Subramanian Swamy.

Claiming
that EVMs were open to hacking, Mr Swamy had sought directions to the
poll watchdog to introduce paper trail to easily and cheaply meet the
requirements of proof that the EVM has rightly registered the vote cast
by a voter.

Mr Swamy had moved the Supreme Court against January
2012 order of the Delhi High Court disallowing his prayer to direct
Election Commission to incorporate the system of paper trail in EVMs.

The
bench noted that though initially the poll panel was little reluctant
in introducing paper trail by use of VVPAT, pursuant to its directions,
the Election Commission contacted several expert bodies and technical
advisers and held meetings with national and state level political
parties and carried out demonstrations.

It noted that after a
thorough examination, VVPAT was successfully used in 21 polling stations
of 51-Noksen (ST) Assembly Constituency of Nagaland.

“The
information furnished by the ECI, through the affidavit dated October 1,
2013 clearly shows that VVPAT system is a successful one,” the bench
said.
