The ruling BJP's income constitutes 76.73% of the total income of the six national parties during FY 2022-23, it said. The BJP received 1294.15 crore through electoral bonds. 

Between 2021-22 and 2022-23, the BJP's income increased by 23.15% or 443.724 crore from 1,917.12 crore to 2,360.84, the ADR said adding that the party declared a total income of 2360.844 crore during FY 2022-23, but spent only 57.68%, which comes to 1,361.684 crore of the total income.

On 15 February, the Supreme Court struck down the electoral bonds scheme calling it unconstitutional.

The Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud had said that poll bonds are violative of fundamental rights and they are not the only way to curb black money.
