Why Not Ban Cash Do­na­tions?

The Economic Times - - The Edit Page Chock-a-block -

Apro­pos the Edit, ‘Don’t Le­git­imise Opaque Poll Funds’ (Feb 4), I fail to un­der­stand why the Modi gov­ern­ment is hes­i­tant in in­tro­duc­ing a Bill in the Par­lia­ment for mak­ing it com­pul­sory for all po­lit­i­cal par­ties not to re­ceive any do­na­tion in cash. Not just the big cor­po­rate houses, even the con­trib­u­tors of small amounts can be en­cour­aged to do­nate dig­i­tally as they are be­ing en­cour­aged by the gov­ern­ment to do busi­ness and per­sonal trans­ac­tions in a cash­less man­ner.
