About e-Seminar –

The judgment of Justice K.S. Puttaswamy (Retd) vs. Union of India, has definitely widened the regime of right to privacy and is definitely going to bring a large number of sectors infringing the privacy laws within its purview. It is hoped that conducting a discussion amongst legal luminaries, academics, members of the Bench, the Bar and enforcement agencies during the proceedings of this e-seminar would be fruitful at a time when the dimensions of the Right to Privacy is changing vividly in India. The first of its kind e-Seminar also seeks to distillate the experience and suggestions of various stakeholders in preparing a database for the lawmakers and policy planners to appropriately frame a Data Protection Law to address the concerns relating to Data Protection, Data Privacy and the Privacy of the individuals in what is being called as the Digital India.
