Yes, ABC can make as it political contribution as it is making payment on behalf of another Comapny. Also make a note of same in Board Meeting.

For XYZ company political contibution need to be approved in Board Meeting and it should not exceed 5 % of average net profit as calculated as per Sec 349 & 350 of co's Act. of preceeding 3 year.
