New Delhi, July 8: The Election Commission of India has accepted the demand raised by the 'Nationalist Congress Party--Sharadchandra Pawar' (NCP-SP) to accept voluntary contributions from public in view of the ensuing State Assembly Elections in Maharashtra.

The party had requested that the Commission issue a communication/certificate recording the status of the party for the purpose of accepting voluntary contributions from the public.

ECI in its communication dated July 8, 2024, has authorised the party to 'accept any amount of contribution voluntarily offered to it by any person or company other than a government company' in compliance under Section 29 B and Section 29C of the Representation of People Act  1951, which govern the contribution to all political parties.

An 8-member delegation of the NCP-SP party led by their working President Supriya Sule met the Commission today at Nirvachan Sadan.

Section 29B of the Representation of People Act permits every political party to accept any amount of contribution voluntarily offered to it by any person or company other than a government company.

The Election Commission allocated the 'Tutari' (man-blowing trumpet) symbol to the Sharad Pawar faction after the party split in July last year.
