EVM Challenge By ECI :

Certain political parties have cast aspersions on the credibility and integrity of EVMs that were used in the recently held General Assembly Elections of five states namely Punjab, Goa, Manipur, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh in Feb- Mar 2017.

Some representations were also received on the same subject. Election Commission of India sought evidence from the complainants. No evidence has been received by the Commission.

Thereafter, a meeting with all National and State Recognised Political Parties was held on 12 May 2017 to explain in details and clarify the technical and administrative protocols of ECI as used during the complete electoral process and that make ECI EVMs non-tamperable.

Now, Election Commission of India invites the nominees of National and State Recognized political parties, who contested and claimed that the EVM machines held under the ownership of Election Commission of India and used in the recently held General Assembly Elections of five states namely Punjab, Goa, Manipur, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh in Feb Mar 2017 were tampered or that these could be tampered even under technical and administrative safeguards of ECI, to demonstrate this claim at the ECI Headquarters within the framework of the extant administrative and security protocols prescribed by the Commission.

Salient features of the EVM Challenge of the Commission are as follows :
Challenge Statement I :
That the EVMs used in the General Elections to five States-2017 were tampered to favour a particular candidate/political party by altering the results stored in the EVMs after the polls.

The claimants will hence have to alter the results in the Control Units used during these polls in exactly the same scenario as the EVMs remain in within the technical and administrative safeguards of ECI after the poll, i.e. during the storage in strong rooms or during counting, through

a. using press of combination of keys on CU or BU or BOTH, or
b. by communication to CU or BU or Both via external wireless/Bluetooth/mobile phone etc because machines during storage remain sealed.

Challenge Statement II :
That the EVMs used in the General Elections to the five States-2017 were tampered before or during the poll day.

The claimants will hence have to alter the results in the EVMs used during these polls in exactly the same scenario as the EVMs remain in within the technical and administrative safeguards of ECI before the poll, i.e. during the storage in strong rooms or during the poll, through

c. using press of combination of keys of CU or BU or Both, or
d. by communication to CU or BU or Both via external wireless/Bluetooth/mobile phone etc.
