The 2019 Lok Sabha election results will be delayed by six whole days if the Opposition parties, demand to increase the counting of VVPAT slips by 50% becomes a reality, the Election Commission indicated to the Supreme Court. pThe affidavit says ne: The 50% Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) slip verification in each Assembly segment of a parliamentary constituency or Assembly constituency, on an average, shall enlarge the time required for counting to about six days. The current confidence level in EVM-VVPAT accuracy is 99.9936%. Any increase in th sample size of verification of VVPAT slips would only lead to a "very negligible gain in the confidence level ink h ferent . Adoption of a particular percentage as a sample for VVPAT slip verification was devoid of pur scientific logic or statistical basis. In fact, it was rather otiose.

Each and every EVM and VVPAT is checked once by slip verification during first level check Thereafter, 5% of the EVMs are selected at random and subjected to higher scrutiny through a mock poll along with slip verification of 1,200 votes for 196, 1000 votes for 2% and 500 votes for 2% of EVMs. . ink h cause t .

  11. want fo be start but th The EC made its stand clear despite the court's recent strong observations in favour of an increase in the sample VVPAT slip counting for the forthcoming elections. With this, the EC has also chosen to stand firm against a plea by 21 Opposition parties that moved the court challenging the poll body's guideline that VVPAT slip counting would take place only in one polling station in an Assembly constituency or each Assembly segment in the Lok Sabha election. The EC banked on a March 22, 2019 report of the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI) to buttress its case against increasing the VVPAT slips' counting The ISI report recommends that a sample verification of 479 EVMs and VVPATs out of a n total 10.35 lakh machines would lift confidence to 99.9936%. But the EC's sample verification for the April-May Lok Sabha polls would cover 4,125 EVMs and VVPATs which is 8.6 times the sample size recommended in the ISI report. . . plu rev heg . cause ferent PLI kand stay

The official cited these concerns and India's stand that Pakistan respond to its demand for a lifting the cap on the number of pilgrims and a waiver of the proposed fee as conditions to hold the second delegation-level talks scheduled to be held on April 2 at Wagah. India said that depending on the response received from Pakistan, the next meeting would be scheduled to take the discussions forward. The first meeting was held on March 14 at Attari. The official said reports had also surfaced about the association of anti-India elements with the Kartarpur Corridor such as Bison Singh, Kuljit Singh, Maninder Singh, and others. The official however, said that to expedite the infrastructure development for the corridor, India has proposed to hold another meeting of technical experts in mid-April to resolve outstanding issues at the "zero point.
