While March was a record month for political parties raising funds through anonymous electoral bonds, April has turned out to be a blockbuster.

The funds raised by various political parties have crossed Rs 2,200 crore in April. This is significantly higher than the Rs 1,365 crore raised in March. In fact, electoral bonds hit the four-digit mark for the first time in March. The Election Commission is against the use of electoral bonds which conceal the identity of the donor.
