Electoral bond controversy: The Supreme Court of India recently asked the State Bank of India (SBI) to disclose the comprehensive information regarding electoral bonds by March 21. The apex court declared the electoral bonds unconstitutional on February 15. Consequently, in every hearing, the court asked India’s largest public sector bank SBI to reveal all the information about bonds. 

The court emphasised the necessity of transparency in political funding, signalling a significant stride towards accountability within the political arena. This directive follows the court's earlier ruling on February 15, which deemed the electoral bond scheme unconstitutional. The decision highlighted the court's commitment to upholding transparency and fairness in the electoral process.
