About 60 -70% of the Political Donations are unaccounted as they are cash donations.
Currently there is no requirement for providing PAN for Donations.
During the demonetization a lot of political parties received crores of rupees as donations and almost all are unaccounted for.
BSP from Uttar Pradesh got around $100 crores and "Mayawati has rebutted this, claiming in one of her speeches that the notes ban hit while the BSP was in the midst of a collection drive, and that the Rs. 100 crores was from millions of small donations from the party's supporters, some of them at the lower end of the economic ladder" - Source: NDTV
I could only think of those cash donations as Black Money, if its not why would some one loose a tax deductions on their political donations.
Another advantage of quoting a PAN/Aadhar is that the donation information could be integrated with the tax returns forms and IT department can validate the donation claims automatically.
Alternatively all donations should be made cashless so as to track where the donations are coming from.
