The report, “In Mizoram, 10 constituencies to follow paper trail” (Nov. 29, 2013), wrongly expanded VVPAT as Voter Verifiable Printer Audit Trail. Actually, VVPAT stands for Voter Verifiable Paper Audit Trail.

In “‘Anti-poverty programmes are leaky’” (Nov. 29, 2013), a sentence in the penultimate paragraph read: “The analysis uses the Tendulkar Poverty Line, according to which a household of five people subsists with a monthly consumption of Rs. 874.50.” Not so. Rs. 874.50 is the monthly per capita consumption expenditure, according to the Tendulkar Poverty Line. The figure for a household of five is Rs 4,400.
