With the counting of votes slated for May 13, a month after the state goes to poll, the district election office has decided to install web cameras in the counting centres.
The 234 strong rooms, where electronic voting machines (EVMs) are stored, will be monitored live for a month via camera till counting of votes starts. In Chennai, the strong rooms at Loyola College in Nungambakkam, Queen Mary’s College for Women off Marina and Anna University will be under video surveillance.
“All strong rooms in the constituencies will have web cameras to monitor the movement of outsiders for one month, till the machines are taken out for counting,” said Praveen Kumar, chief electoral officer, Tamil Nadu. Adequate security personnel from central reserve police forces will be deployed and control rooms will be set up.
