The Election Commission of India has sought power to delist inactive political parties in the country.

A team of ECI officials met union law minister Kiren Rijiju recently to discuss the issue. The ECI team also discussed other issues like linking Aadhaar to voter identity cards.

The ECI sought power to take action against political parties that have not contested elections for decades but are enjoying tax exemptions on donations.

With elections of five states round the corner, the ECI is in the process of getting data from political parties and also going through its data on various parties.

There are nearly 2700 political parties in India that are registered but unrecognized.

According to reports, the union law ministry is likely to take a call on the request of the ECI soon.
