New Election Commission website sees technical snags (Lead)May 16th, 2009 - 11:08 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, May 16 (IANS) The Election Commission’s new website, specially created to provide the Lok Sabha election trends and results, developed technical snags in the morning and evening Saturday.
The website’s server crashed for over two hours in the evening and poll panel officials said it would be set right soon.
“A technical team of the National Informatics Centre (NIC) is still working to clear the snags that developed in the new website,” an Election Commission official said here.
This was the second time the website developed technical snags. It faced problems in the morning due to a huge rush of visitors to the site.
“Since early Saturday a lot of people have been checking the new Election Commission website for the results because of which there has been a congestion. This caused snags in the website,” Deputy Election Commissioner Alok Shukla told IANS.
The Election Commission website for the results is www.eciresults.nic.in.
