EVOLUTION OF RIGHT TO PRIVACY IN INDIA: NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

Ramakant Tripathi, Dr. Rajesh Bahuguna.

Abstract
Right to privacy is one of the valuable rights. Despite the constitutional mandate, neither the
Parliament nor the legislature of any State has enacted any legislation laying down the principle covering this issue.
In the present era, the enhanced use of technology in data processing has created a major problem before the states
as well as individuals. Recently the Supreme Court of India has held that the Constitution of India guarantees right
to privacy and it is implicit in fundamental right to life and personal liberty, freedom of speech and expression and
freedom of movement. But after one year of its first decision the same court has held that the Aadhaar Act 2016,
which permits the state to take some personal information such as finger print, iris scan etc, is Constitutional. Data
sharing through new technological tool without proper guidelines is not very safe. In case of breach of duty by any
official who are engaged in collecting and storing data, the victim has no proper forum to file his case except in
ordinary courts which are already overburdened. Further the recognition of right to privacy as fundamental rights
has affected various other rights of citizens which may be claimed by them in the name of their right to privacy. It is
pertinent to mention here that the right to privacy is recognized as fundamental right by judiciary and in the name of
violation of right to privacy many state’s actions and laws may be challenged. In this article the researcher would try
to explain the evolution of the right to privacy and its development in India by making a comparison with the
position of this right in some other countries and issues and challenges in implementing it.

Key words: Right to privacy, fundamental rights, personal liberty, data protection
