EVM used in India are tamper-proof: Former CEC OP Rawat

Jaipur,jan 4:

Former Chief Election Commissioner OP Rawat has said that the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) used in India are tamper-proof.

Speaking at an event in Jaipur, he said any attempt to tamper with the EVM will set it to the factory mode.

Mr Rawat said, the technology being used in Indian EVMs has been chosen carefully so that it cannot be hacked.

The EVMs used in developed countries were often advanced, equipped with Wi-Fi technology and were internet-enabled, he said. Mr Rawat also said that there was more participation since the Election Commission started to use electronically transmitted postal ballots.

He said similar efforts were being made for NRIs and migrant workers.
