EVMs cannot be tampered : EC

Shillong, May 11: 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 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 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. Such so called demonstration on extraneous and duplicate gadgets which are not owned by the ECI cannot be exploited to influence our Intelligent Citizens & Electorate to assail or vilify the EVMs used by the Commission in its electoral process.
