An Electronic Voting Machine is "information" under Right to Information Act and can be demanded by an-applicant from Election-Commission of India on-a-payment of Rs.10, Central Information Commission has ruled. This implies Election-Commission has to respond to an-RTI-application seeking the EVM either by providing it or refusing it under exemption clauses in Act. But that also can be contested before CIC, highest-adjudicating-authority in RTI matters.
