But a top EC official said on Saturday that no discrepancy has been reported from any of the 542 constituencies.

Paper slips of more than 20,600 Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail (VVPAT) machines were counted in more than 4,000 assembly segments.

After VVPATs were introduced, no discrepancy in the tallying of votes polled through EVMs have been reported in the previous Assembly elections.

It is for the first time that the matching of paper trail machines slips with voting machines was held in a Lok Sabha election.

The elections in the Vellore constituency of Tamil Nadu were cancelled by the EC, citing excessive use of money power.

No new date has so far been announced by the poll panel.
