He said, EVMs are very suitable for a big country like India and reminded that  Election Commission introduced in assembly elections for the first time in 1990's.Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPATS) slips can always be counted. There won't be any discrepency between EVMs and VVPATS. But, counting the VVPAT slips is difficult, it takes lot of time, which is unpracticable, Dr.Krishna Murthy said.
