Privacy Rights In India

Enforcement of privacy right in the ICT era is an important part of protection of human rights in cyberspace. Privacy rights must be analysed along with some allied rights like data protection rights, data security rights, right to information, etc.

As far as India is concerned, we have no dedicated privacy laws in India and privacy rights in India, data protection laws in India, data security laws in India, cyber security laws in India, etc.  Privacy rights and laws in India are required for protecting human rights in cyberspace that are presently missing in India.

The matter is already pending in Supreme Court of India. The Supreme Court of India must expand privacy rights in India as Indian Parliament has failed to provide privacy laws in India despite pressing needs. Further, the Supreme Court of India must also clear the relationship between national security and right to information in India.  

Instead of providing privacy rights to Indian citizens, the Indian parliament has curtailed the same through bringing amendments in the information technology act, 2000 (IT Act 2000) of India. The IT Act, 2000 is the sole cyber law of India that urgently requires to be repealed.

Indian government is suppressing privacy rights in India for its own purposes. Even the right to information act has been diluted to a great extent to keep many governmental functions out of its ambit. Intelligence agencies of India are operating without any parliamentary oversight and diluting right to information in such a situation is complete endorsement to growing e-surveillance in India.

It is high time for Supreme Court of India to prevent further mutilations of almost non existing privacy rights in India.

Electronic Delivery Of Services In India

Electronic Delivery of Services in India has been in news for years but its actual implementation is still to happen. Despite many rounds of legislative drafting and governmental discussions, the Indian electronic delivery of services bill 2011 could not see the light of the day. The natural result is that e-delivery of services in India is missing.

While rejecting the latest draft of the EDS bill, the parliamentary standing committee on information and technology gave few reasons like lack of resources, amendments must be made to the information technology act, 2000 to accommodate electronic delivery of services, inadequate time to ensure electronic delivery of services by states, etc. All these apprehensions have no merit and they deserve to be ignored.

However, the rejection of the EDS bill by the committee is also blessing in disguise as the proposed bill was highly deficient on many counts. Even the committee has given some very good suggestions that can strengthen the new EDS bill that can be passed by the Indian parliament.

It would be a good idea to involve techno legal experts while formulating the next EDS bill so that various deficiencies can be taken care of. A holistic EDS bill must be formulated that takes care of all the aspects pertaining to electronic delivery of services in India.

E-Delivery Of Services In India Missing

Electronic delivery of services in India (e-delivery of services in India) is in really bad shape thanks to the myopic attitude of our Indian government and its committees. As on date we have no mandatory framework for e-governance services in India.

This is a clear case of denial of digital empowerment of Indian citizens by the Indian government. The information technology act 2000 (IT Act 2000), which is the sole cyber law of India, carries few provisions pertaining to e-governance in India. However, the IT Act 2000 expressly put an embargo upon mandatory e-governance services in India.

It is really surprising that after more than 12 years of enactment of IT Act, 2000 the parliamentary standing committee on information and technology still believes that states would not be able to meet the e-governance needs of India. If a country cannot put in place e-governance services for 12 years and is still insisting upon more years, it puts a question mark upon the capabilities of that nation.

No doubt India is really poor at e-readiness and e-governance in India is dying. Indian government is presently facing a “technology bankruptcy” and “ICT emergency” vis-à-vis cyber crimes, cyber attacks, cyber security and other related issues.

There is nothing wrong in enacting a good law in this regard but there is everything wrong when we make excuses for not enactment of such law at all. We need time bound enactment exercises and by allowing unlimited time to enact such laws, we are doing no good to India. It is high time for us to ensure e-delivery of services in India.
