The voting booth officers have been sensitised to the law in Punjab. From Tamil Nadu, the news said, that a voter couldn't use the option because the officer in charge did not know about it. The 'none of the above' option has not been implemented yet, as far as I know. (All this if you g**gle 'vote 49o')

No, I havent been following news either, following blogs and heard about this on a comment on sheece.com. I g**gled it to verify and got a feeling that it has been going around in forwards, so I decided I might as well put the original Election Commission release. :)
