The Supreme Court on Friday said that all political parties who have received donations through electoral bonds must submit details to the Election Commission of India in a sealed cover before May 30.
In an interim order, the apex court asked political parties to give details of donors who donated through electoral bonds, amounts received from them, details of payment received on each bond etc. to the poll panel.
The court said the issue requires detailed hearing and so it will announce the date for final hearing later. "We will examine in detail changes made in law and ensure balance does not tilt in favour of any party," the court said.
The top court also directed the Finance Ministry to reduce window of purchasing electoral bonds from 10 days to five days in April-May.
