Deposits placed by 17 candidates at the recent Presidential election have been confiscated.

This is since they failed to obtain at least 1% of the total votes cast at the election.

An independent group had to place a deposit of Rs 75,000 each while a registered political party had to place a deposit of Rs 50,000 each.

Accordingly the total value of funds confiscated would be 900 thousand Rupees.
