The Supreme Court’s interim order asking political parties to disclose, to the Election Commission in sealed covers, details of the donations they have received through anonymous electoral bonds is an inadequate and belated response to the serious concerns raised about the opaque scheme.

What does sealed cover mean in this context?

I looked up its meaning but didn't find any thing.


In the context, it refers that the documents must be provided in covers (e.g. envelopes) which are closed in such way that the content cannot be open and seen, and the text cannot be read (sealed) - not without breaking the seal in a visible way.

The purpose is to keep the contents as secret as possible, or to keep them protected from alteration - information removed, added or changed.

Similar with a sealed enclosure, which cannot exchange content with the outside.
