New Delhi : The Election Commission of India (ECI) on May 9, 2017, reiterated the EVMs are non-tamperable. “The Election Commission, through media, has learnt about a so called demonstration of tampering of ‘look-alike’ EVM. In this context it should be understood that it is possible for anyone to make any electronic gadget which ‘looks-like’  ECI EVM and demonstrate any magic or tampering. Very simply put, any ‘look-alike” machine is just a different gadget, which is manifestly designed and made to function in a ‘tampered’ manner and has no relevance, incidence or bearing on the Commission’s EVMs,” it said.

” It is common sense that gadgets other than ECI EVMs can be programmed to perform in a pre-determined way, but it simply cannot be implied that ECI EVMs will behave in the same manner because the ECI EVMs are technically secured and function under an elaborate administrative and security Protocol, ” the EC said, according to a PIB release. The Election Commission of India (ECI) has scheduled an All Political Parties meeting on May 12, 2017 on EVM Issues and other Electoral Reforms.
