EVM not “information” under RTI Act, Delhi HC

The Delhi High Court has held that an Electronic Voting Machine (EVM) does not qualify as “information” in terms of Section 2(f) of the Right to Information Act and therefore, one cannot seek access to an EVM under the Act.

The order was passed by a Single Judge Bench of Justice Jayant Nath in a challenge preferred by the Election Commission of India against a decision passed by the Chief Information Commissioner (CIC).
