Contempt plea in SC against SBI in Electoral Bond Case

Contempt plea in SC against SBI in Electoral Bond Case

An NGO filed a contempt plea in the Supreme Court on Thursday, challenging the State Bank of India's (SBI) application requesting an extension until June 30 to disclose the specifics of each electoral bond cashed by political parties.

Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud, leading a bench, acknowledged the arguments presented by lawyer Prashant Bhushan, representing the NGO Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), regarding his intent to initiate contempt proceedings in the matter.

Bhushan highlighted that the SBI's request is expected to be scheduled for March 11, and suggested that the contempt application should be concurrently addressed.

The Chief Justice responded by saying, "Please send an e-mail. I will pass the order."

The SBI had petitioned the apex court on March 4, seeking an extension of time until June 30 to reveal the details of electoral bonds.

In a judgment issued last month, the Supreme Court had instructed the SBI to provide the information to the Election Commission (EC) by March 6.
