However, in India these devices is known as Electronic Voting Machines ,have been praised for their easy devise, ease of use, and reliability, but recently they have also been criticized and despite this criticism, several particulars of the machineries’ design have never been publicly disclosed, and they have not been subjected to a rigorous, independent security evaluation. This research paper will evaluate the machine’s effectiveness and function in detail, as well as address its safety in light of related election procedures. Presently , in India available Electronic Voting Machines(EVM) has been applauded for their uncomplicated design, dependability as well as usability, yet as of late they have moreover been condemned taking after across the board reports of race abnormalities.
