Opposition to EC’s remote voting machine to affect migrants

UPSC Practice recommends Opposition to EC’s remote voting machine to affect migrants.

The proximate driver for the RVM are migrant workers. The EC’s proposal will make it possible for anyone who lives outside the state in which they are registered to exercise their franchise in another state. Therefore, the arguments by the Opposition that difficulties of establishing a definition for migrant workers would render this system problematic has little basis.
