On 28 March 2022 the incoming merger of Swatantra Bharat Paksha into Swarna Bharat Party was completed. As part of the merger, the party is now called Swatantra Bharat Party. The rest of the details including bank account number and registration number with the Election Commission of India remain unchanged.
Sh. Pankaj Das has now transitioned from the role of President of Swarna Bharat Party to that of Secretary of the combined Party - and Sh. Anil Ghanwat has taken over as the combined Party's President.
Candidates will only be able to contest elections under this new name once ECI has taken note of the merger and name change in its records under section 29A(9) of the Representation of People's Act ("After an association or body has been registered as a political party as aforesaid, any change in its name, head office, office-bearers, address or in any other material matters shall be communicated to the Commission without delay"). The merger resolutions, name change information, etc. are being provided to ECI.
