Supreme Court on Electoral Bond Latest News: The Supreme Court of India on Monday dismissed the State Bank of India's (SBI) petition to extend the deadline for disclosing details related to Electoral Bonds until June 30. Instead, the apex court has instructed the SBI to provide all necessary information by tomorrow, March 12th, 2024.

Electoral Bonds, introduced in 2018, have been a contentious issue due to concerns regarding transparency in political funding. These bonds allow individuals and corporations to make anonymous donations to political parties, raising questions about accountability and potential misuse.
