"In addition to the Transparency Report and Ads Library, election ads on Google platforms will also disclose who has paid for the ad," Google said.

"In 2019, over 850 million Indians are expected to cast their vote to elect the country's next government. We're thinking hard about elections and how we continue to support democratic processes in India and around the world," Chetan Krishnaswamy, Director-Public Policy, Google India, had said in a blog post.
