Surveillance Of Internet Traffic

Civil
liberties in India and technological revolution

are
sharing an adverse relationship in India. The more technology India
is using the greater are civil liberties violations in India. For
instance, e-surveillance
in India
is openly done without any
constitutionally sound
legal framework.
The civil
liberties protection in cyberspace
in India are
totally
absent and  Indian government is introducing laws, regulations
and rules that clearly violate the freedoms guaranteed by Indian
constitution. Now Indian government has extended its e-surveillance
activities to Internet and mobile infrastructure as well.
According to Praveen Dalal, leading
techno legal
expert of Asia and managing partner of Perry4Law
and CEO of PTLB,
Surveillance
of Internet Traffic in India
is one of the top
priorities
of Indian Government. Now E-Surveillance is proposed to be expanded
to even mobile infrastructure. The cell
site location based e-surveillance in India
is
also in
contemplation. Cell
site data location laws in India and privacy issues

are
once again bypassed for this proposal. Even the E-Surveillance
Policy of India
is missing that can provide some
safeguards against Illegal and Unconstitutional E-Surveillance in
India, informs Praveen Dalal.
Similarly projects like Aadhar
project of India
, central
monitoring system project of India
, etc are also
intended
to strengthen the e-surveillance capabilities of India without and
constitutional safeguards.
ICT
policies and strategies of India
are grossly
defective and
clearly violating human
rights in cyberspace
. In fact, there is a
dedicated
resource titled websites,
blogs and news censorship by Google and Indian government

that is making a database of various censorship and results
manipulation activities in India.
Indian government must ensure civil
liberties protection in Indian cyberspace
as
that is its
constitutional as well as human right objection.
