Study Shows 69 Per Cent Of Income Of National, Regional Parties Come From Unknown Sources

A study by the Association for Democratic Reforms has found that nearly 69 per cent of the total income of national and regional parties comes from unknown sources. Parties are not required to reveal the name of individuals or organisations donating more than Rs 20,000, which allows sources for large amounts to go undisclosed. From a study of contribution statements by parties to the Election Commission over 10 years from 2004-05 to 2014-15, ADR noted that the total income of parties, both national and regional, was over Rs 11,367 crore. Of this, Rs 7,832 crore came from unknown sources.
