Bihar VVPAT slips match EVM tally: EC

VVPAT slips counted in 1215 randomly selected polling stations across 243 assembly constituencies for the recent Bihar elections brought out a 100% match with the corresponding EVM tally, the Election Commission said on Wednesday. The disclosure comes on the back of several allegations of irregularities on counting day, particularly from Rashtriya Janata Dal.

As per the rules, in the unlikely event of the VVPAT slip count not matching with EVM vote tally, it is the VVPAT slip count that is taken as final while computing the result.
