Rajeev Chandrasekhar Counters Elon Musk's Criticism of EVMs, Invites Discussion

In response to recent comments by Tesla CEO Elon Musk on the reliability of India's electronic voting machines (EVMs), Union Minister of State for Electronics and Information Technology, Rajiv Chandrasekhar, has rebutted the allegations, emphasizing the robust security measures in place.

Musk's Allegations and Chandrasekhar's Response

Elon Musk had raised concerns regarding the potential for EVMs to be manipulated, claiming that the lack of a paper trail could facilitate election rigging. However, Chandrasekhar dismissed these concerns, stating that the EVMs used in India are highly secure and have been subjected to rigorous testing.

Chandrasekhar explained that India's EVMs incorporate advanced technological safeguards, including encryption, multiple layers of protection, and tamper-proof design. He highlighted the fact that election officials, political parties, and independent experts have extensively scrutinized and validated the EVMs' reliability over the years.

Invitation to Collaborate

Chandrasekhar invited Musk to engage in a technical dialogue with the Election Commission of India (ECI), which is responsible for conducting elections in the country. He expressed willingness to provide Musk with a detailed explanation of the EVM's security features and dispel any misconceptions.

The minister emphasized that the ECI is an independent and impartial body that is committed to ensuring the integrity of the electoral process. He stated that the ECI has been continuously upgrading the EVMs and enhancing their security features based on technological advancements.

Sweeping Generalizations and the Importance of Context

Chandrasekhar cautioned against making sweeping generalizations about electronic voting systems based on isolated incidents or anecdotes. He stressed the need to evaluate the security and reliability of EVMs within the context of the specific electoral environment and the measures in place to safeguard the integrity of the process.

Confidence in EVMs

The minister expressed confidence in the security and reliability of India's EVMs, stating that they have been instrumental in ensuring free and fair elections. He emphasized that the EVMs have been used in multiple elections across the country, including national and state-level polls, without any credible reports of manipulation.

Chandrasekhar urged the public to maintain trust in the electoral process and rely on credible information provided by authorized sources, such as the ECI. He expressed confidence that India's EVMs are robust and capable of safeguarding the sanctity of the electoral process.


The exchange between Rajiv Chandrasekhar and Elon Musk has highlighted the importance of informed discussions and evidence-based evaluations when assessing the security of electronic voting systems. Chandrasekhar's invitation to engage in a technical dialogue with the ECI is a positive step towards addressing concerns and fostering a better understanding of the electoral process in India. By embracing transparency and seeking collaboration, the nation can continue to strengthen its commitment to free and fair elections.
