Contempt Plea Filed in SC Against SBI’s Request for Time Extension on Electoral Bonds Disclosure

An NGO filed a contempt plea in the Supreme Court challenging the State Bank of India’s (SBI) request for an extension until June 30th to disclose the details of each electoral bond encashed by political parties. Lawyer Prashant Bhushan, representing the NGO Association for Democratic Reforms (ADR), informed the bench headed by Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud about seeking contempt proceedings. The SBI’s plea is expected to be listed on March 11th, and the contempt application is requested to be heard concurrently. The Chief Justice indicated passing an order upon receiving an email. The SBI’s move came after the Supreme Court’s verdict last month, directing the bank to provide the details to the Election Commission by March 6th.
