Default Right to privacy in India

"The Supreme Court has said that the Right to Privacy cannot be an absolute right and the State may have some power to put reasonable restriction. The nine-judge Constitution bench was yesterday examining the issue whether Right to Privacy can be declared as a Fundamental Right under the Constitution.

The bench said we live in an age of big data and the state is entitled to regulate the data whether it is for the purpose of regulating crime, taxation or other activities. The argument will continue today and the Attorney General is likely to put the government's view across."

Default Courts cannot introduce fundamental rights: Maharashtra govt to SC

"This is not the case of interpretation of the Constitution or the law. This is the case of introduction of a right as a fundamental right. This can be done only by Parliament," senior advocate C A Sundaram, appearing for the Maharashtra government, told the judges."

Supreme out rules the Indian practice of 'Triple Talaq' among Muslims as unconstitutional. A Muslim person gets a divorce by just saying the word 'Talaq' thrice or even doing that by letter, e-mail, FB or Whatsapp. The court has asked the government to frame rules within six months.

"A nine-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice JS Khehar ruled that right to privacy is an intrinsic part of Right to Life and Personal Liberty under Article 21 and entire Part III of the Constitution.

The nine judges unanimously overruled the two earlier judgements of the apex court that right to privacy is not protected under the Constitution.

Several petitioners had challenged the validity of the Aadhaar scheme on grounds of it being violative of the right to privacy.

The court had also voiced concern over the possible misuse of personal information in the public domain. The question whether Aadhaar violates right to privacy will be dealt with by the five-judge bench which has been hearing the petitions since 2015."

"Aadhaar is a 12 digit unique-identity number issued to all Indian residents based on their biometric and demographic data. The data is collected by the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), a statutory authority established on July 2016 by the Government of India, under the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, under the provisions of the Aadhaar (Targeted Delivery of Financial and other Subsidies, benefits and services) Act, 2016."

Government intends to have Aadhar, but take only that information that won't infringe on the decision of the Supreme Court.
