The list had been handed over to the Indian government in Mar, 2009. The government had taken the stand that the names could not not be disclosed because these had been given by the German government on confidential terms.
The list released by Tehelka contains the names of 12 individuals and three foundations without their address and the business. The named individual is said to have allegedly stashed the black money in foreign accounts.
The magazine said it had approached each of the individuals involved and was awaiting their response pending, which they are not giving details though it had given the names.
According to the magazine, the name of the chairman of a major Indian corporation was on the list but it had decided to hold back the name because it was awaiting "its full version".
