Black Money: Centre submits names to SC
New Delhi, Oct 29: Centre on Wednesday submitted names of 627 Indians who have accounts in foreign banks to the Supreme Court in the black money case. The government submitted the names in three set of documents in a sealed envelope.

Along with this, the Centre also submitted list on treaties and status report.

This comes a day after the SC rapped the Centre for delaying the matter and said that it would give the Centre just one day to submit all the names. The court also said that the black money case will be investigated by Special Investigation Team (SIT) and not the government.

However it is not clear whether all the names will be made public or not.

SC has given March 2015 as the deadline to the SIT to probe the case and asked to submit a report by November 2014. "SIT is our representative, we have full trust in them," said SC.

SC refuses to open the sealed envelope saying that the documents be placed before SIT. "Only SIT chairman and vice chairman can open the sealed envelope containing names of account holders," SC said. SC said SIT will decide what further action is to be taken on the black money issue.
