SC reserves its order on PIL challenging govt's electoral bond scheme

FILE PIC: PTI
The Supreme Court today reserved its order on a PIL challenging the government's electoral bond scheme for political funding. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi said it would pronounce its order tomorrow on the plea filed by NGO, Association of Democratic Reforms (ADR).

The NGO, which has challenged the validity of the scheme, has sought interim relief including that either the issuance of electoral bonds be stayed or the names of the donors be made public to ensure transparency in the poll process. Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, supported the scheme saying the purpose behind it is to eliminate the use of black money in elections. 

He said  so far as the electoral bond scheme is concerned, it is the matter of policy decision of the government and no government can be faulted for taking policy decision . He further added the court can scrutinize the scheme after elections.
