The Election Commission today said it will deploy more VVPATs or paper trail machines from one to five in every assembly segment. The poll body's decision came after the Supreme Court today ordered it to ensure high degree of accuracy in the national elections starting Thursday. The Election Commission said results could be delayed by five days if 50 per cent of VVPATs in every assembly segment is counted. But since the top court's order is only for five VVPATs, the delay would be marginal - an hour or so, sources said.
