New Delhi: The Election Commission has asked political parties to submit in sealed cover the details of electoral bonds received by them till September end this year. They have been directed to send the details by tomorrow. This came following the direction of the Supreme Court that all political parties should give particulars of electoral bonds received by them till 30 September 2023 in sealed cover to the Commission. In its letter to the President of all political parties, the poll body said all parties which have ever received any donation by way of electoral bonds, are to furnish the details of the donations along with details of the donors against each bond and the amount as well as the full particulars of the credit received against each bond.

In fact, the Election Commission in an order on November 3  had directed the political parties  to furnish details regarding  the donations received through electoral bonds and other sources in a double sealed cover – one sealed envelope containing the details of donations received and another sealed envelope enclosing the first one.

Details of each donor, the amount received through such bonds, the bank account to which the amount was credited and the date when this was done need to be submitted.

On November 2, the Supreme Court told the Election Commission to collect data on donations that political parties received through electoral bonds till September 30. The poll panel was asked to submit the data to the Registrar General of the Supreme Court in a sealed cover within two weeks.

On November 2, the Supreme Court also reserved its judgement in response to a batch of pleas challenging the validity of the electoral bonds scheme.
