Meanwhile, the Election Commission of India has developed a prototype of the remote electronic voting machine for domestic migrant voters, said Chief Election Commissioner Rajiv Kumar in an official statement.

It has also invited political parties for a demonstration on January 16, according to the news agency PTI.

The poll panel has also floated a concept note on remote voting and sought the views of political parties on the legal, administrative and technical challenges in implementing it, the statement read.

It further informed that the multi-constituency remote EVM, developed by a public sector undertaking, can handle up to 72 constituencies from a single remote polling booth, PTI reported.
