The government today came out with contours of new ‘electoral bonds’ that can be used to donate money to political parties. The bonds, which will help clean up election funding, can be bought for any value in multiples of Rs 1,000, Rs 10,000, Rs 1 lakh, Rs 10 lakh or Rs 1 crore at specified branches of SBI.
