In the counting of such machines whose control unit is not showing, the counting of the remaining machines will be continued by keeping such machines aside by the retiring officer. If the difference between the win and loss of the candidates is more than the votes of the control unit which is not displayed, then the result will be declared by not taking it in the counting of votes. Similarly, if the difference is less or equal then the votes will be calculated from VVPET as per rules.
A sanitizer will be arranged by the district administration at the counting center and the guidelines of Kovid-19 will be followed. A strong room will be opened in the presence of candidates before counting. There will be continuous CCTV coverage of the corridor and counting hall while opening the strong room, removing the machines. After counting of votes, the slip of randomly selected five-five VVpets will also be calculated and verified in the calculation of Mendatory VVPet.
