The State Bank of India (SBI) argued in Supreme Court that matching data of electoral bonds donors and beneficiary political parties would take months. Journalists at South First matched data of electoral bonds – donors to political parties, that redeemed them, in a matter of hours.

Here is an easy-to-use, interactive tool to know which individual and company donated to which party via electoral bonds. This search box matches electoral bonds donors to beneficiary political parties using the unique alphanumeric of each bond. The data is based on information provided by SBI and published by ECI following Supreme Court’s orders. You can find complete details of electoral bonds – date of purchase, name of donor, date of encashment, beneficiary political party, denomination of funds and unique bond ID.
