Government will disclose names of Swiss account holders to Supreme Court

On Monday, the Centre will submit to the Supreme Court the names of Indians believed to have undeclared money in Swiss banks, according to Hindustan Times. The next day, the court will continue hearing petitions on black money deposits. The list will contain 136 of the 800 names that were provided by European governments and banks to Indian investigators. According to Global Financial Integrity, an American think-tank, Indians have stashed away Rs 28 lakh crore in overseas tax havens from 1948 to 2008.
