Right to Privacy

Though in many countries,

Privacy enjoys a strong legal framework

India has been cautious.

On one hand the Government has the propensity

To encroach the private space of the citizens,

The citizens are, by and large, unaware and unmindful

Of the concepts and importance of privacy.

Given this, the Supreme Court of India judgment of August 24, 2017

That recognizes ‘right to privacy’

As intrinsic to life and liberty,

And protected under Indian Constitution,

May not only induce the course correction in Government polices

But also alter the discourse

On personal data (especially biometric) security and protection as well.
