The Supreme Court has dismissed the plea filed by 21 Opposition leaders seeking a review of its April 8 order directing the Election Commission to increase random matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs to five polling booths per assembly segment.

The bench headed by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi refused to review its earlier judgment wherein it directed the Election Commission to increase matching of VVPAT slips with EVMs from one to five polling stations per assembly seat.

The plea by parties sought to verify at least 50 per cent of Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) slips with Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs)

We are not inclined to modify our order,” a bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said. The plea was filed by opposition leaders led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
