BEL denies the report on EVM Hackathon by Botswana Election Commission
With reference to the news story published on web portal(s) stating there
in that a team of Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) would be participating in
demonstration cum Hackathon of EVMs being organised by Botswana Election
Commission on 18th of this month, BEL states that this news story is
completely baseless and false.

BEL categorically states that it has not sold any EVMs or VVPATs to
Botswana Election Commission. Botswana Election commission has invited
team of BEL to show only the functionality of EVMs and VVPATs designed to
meet the specific requirements of Botswana Government. These EVMs and
VVPATs are different from the ones which are used by Election Commission
of India.

No Hackathon event involving any EVM of BEL has been planned or scheduled
by it. Therefore, Press Note issued by Botswana Election Commission is
without our approval / consent and facts stated therein are completely
false and incorrect.
