According to a recent study by a collaborative team from NetIndia and University of Michigan, “India’s e-voting machines are vulnerable to fraud”. They claim that the machines can easily be manipulated using a mobile phone.
On the other hand, Election Commission of India fully supports the EVMs and says that the study was not conducted on the original machines. The research committee was not provided with any of the original machines. They conducted the tests on the spares and manipulated results.
Do you agree with the claim made by the research committee, or by the Indian Election Commission(IEC)? And if what is claimed by the research committee is correct, should the EVMs be banned in India?
