Electoral Bonds for cleaner election funding - Inputs Sought

Several of you participated in the LocalCircles polls on Electoral Bonds in the last few months. Here is the report on the same:

LocalCircles Report http://bit.ly/electoralbond-lc
Other Media Reportshttp://bit.ly/electoralbond-nie

The results suggest that while most citizens support Electoral Bonds they feel that donor anonymity could lead to lack of transparency and increased policy level corruption. Also there is a concern about shell companies being used to purchase electoral bonds.

Kindly review the same, share with your social media and other contacts so the disclosures can be improved.

If you have inputs on Electoral Bonds or Electoral Funding, please share the same as well. more
