The Chief Electoral Officer Rajath Kumar on Wednesday demonstrated the working of VVPAT machines procured for the Telangana assembly elections for the first time.

Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) gives feedback to the voters for whom they have voted and also generates a slip seven seconds after the voter presses button on EVM. The slip generated contains the party symbol and name of the candidate to which the voter has voted.
