New Delhi: Government on Monday said though the Election Commission had received some complaints of tampering of Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), no one could demonstrate any such tampering before the poll body.

Replying to a question in the Rajya Sabha, Law Minister Salman Khurshid said, "Election Commission has stated that it is satisfied with the functioning of the EVMs."

"Though apprehensions were expressed by some persons that the EVMs can be tampered with, but so far no one has been able to demonstrate or prove before the Commission that the EVMs used in the country's election process, can be manipulated or tampered with," he said.

"Further there is a Technical Experts Committee to constantly monitor all technical aspects of EVMs including non-tamperability," he said.

In response to another question, Khurshid said out of 39.33 lakh cases that had been assigned to Fast Track courts 32.99 lakh cases had been disposed off by them. He said 6.34 lakh cases were still pending in these courts.

Replying to another question, Khurshid said 63 applications for voluntary retirement had been received from Supreme Court employees.

Of them, 56 employees had taken voluntary retirement, he said.
