On further such verification in the field made by the Chief Electoral Officer of the States/UTs through their official machinery, it has been noted to the Commission that some parties are no longer in functioning or existence.”

The EC of India has so far deleted the names of 255 political parties from the list of registered un-recognised political parties maintained by the Commission under the said Section 29A and and para 17 of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968.

Sources had told The Indian Express that the EC hopes that the CBDT will have a “close look” at the financials of these delisted parties so that a clear message can go out that forming a political party for “turning black money into white” is no longer a good idea.

EC data shows there are currently seven National Political Parties, 58 State Parties and 1,786 Registered Unrecognised Parties.

Under existing laws, the EC has the authority to register a political party but there is no provision to allow it to deregister any party that has been given recognition.
