Delhi HC directs DU to provide EVMs for Delhi High Court Bar Association Elections

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court (DHCBA) directed the Delhi University (DU) to provide Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs) for the upcoming DHCBA elections.

Justice Sanjeev Narula also ordered the DHCBA to make an ad hoc payment of Rs 5 lakh to the DU and directed the university to generate a proforma invoice based on the EVMs' usage period.

The High Court has directed the DHCBA election commission to make sure that officers operating the machines are extended full courtesy after DU officials expressed concern about misbehavior with its staff during the conduct of elections.

The court ordered that the election commission officials share their contacts with the officers so that they can be contacted.

“In order to ensure that the EVM machines are immediately returned to the university, the results and data of machine shall be preserved and the machines shall then be returned to the university immediately after the declaration of results,” it stated.

The development follows a petition filed by the DHCBA challenging the postponement of its elections due to a lack of EVMs.

The DHCBA election commission decided to postpone the elections after DU demanded Rs 1.1 crore because its EVMs were ordered to be preserved by the Patiala House Court following allegations of fraud in the previous elections.

Justice Narula had asked the election commission to discuss the matter with its members in a special Sunday sitting, after which the commission decided to place its order for deferment on hold.
