E V M

From now on, i write these moment of truth snipets which talk about not so popular truths which might be useless sometimes ( infact all of the times) but, i still write it (for fun!!!!).

EVM- Electronic Voting machine

This machine was designed,developed, manufactured and tested by Election commision of india in collaboration with Electronic corporation of india, hyderabad and BEL ( bharath electronics limited)  support ECIL.

For the 2009 elections, they have manufacuted around 15 million voting machines in hyderabad, which can record a maximum of 3840 votes and can cater upto 16 candidates in one single unit and if there are more than 16 candidates contesting they can connect 4 Evm's parallely.

EVms was first used in 1982 in the bye-election to Parur Assembly Constituency of Kerala for a limited number of polling stations (50 polling stations)
