Number Theory: Poll bonds, their sway on India's political finance

Feb 27, 2024 08:39 AM IST

This is the first of a two-part series on India’s political funding. The second part will look at problems at political funding at the grassroot level.

The Supreme Court’s judgement declaring electoral bonds unconstitutional has revived the debate on political funding in India. While the judgement on electoral bonds has been widely praised, the problems with India’s political funding go beyond the electoral bond issue. This two-part data journalism series will try to explain the issues in detail. The first part will look at the problems with the electoral bond scheme and the second part will look at problems which go beyond electoral bonds.
