According to EC sources, the project is due to expire next June. EC is undecided about what will happen to these EVMs next. Because most of the EVMs are useless, they require huge amount of money to repair them. After repair they will require money and manpower to maintain them again. Already, more than 50 crores of rent has accumulated due to keep them. However, EC will not directly ask for money for these repairs. They will write to the government highlighting the situation. In this case, another option in EC's hand is to destroy (dispose of) these devices.

Election Commission Additional Secretary Ashok Kumar Debnath told Prothom Alo that this problem has arisen because there is no conservation sector in the project. Now a letter will be written to the cabinet department seeking guidance on what to do with the EVMs. This letter will be sent after Eid. However, the EVMs that are operational will be used as long as they can be used. Whatever needs to be done for this will be arranged.
