The Center for Communication Governance (CCG) at the National Law University Delhi (CCG) was established in 2013 to ensure that Indian legal education establishments engage more meaningfully with information technology law and policy and contribute to improved governance and policy making.
Over the past two years, CCG NLUD has been working on an academic research report on the surveillance law landscape in India and the impact of the decision of India’s Supreme Court Decision in the K.S. Puttaswamy v Union of India case. The report provides a detailed analysis of the constitutional and legal framework for surveillance in India, examining accountability mechanisms, challenges and limitations of the current legal framework, as well as recommendations to assess realignment of surveillance law.
GNI welcomes the release of this report as part of the Sustaining Multi-stakeholder Networks for Internet Freedom Project, hoping to spark further discussion around privacy in the region.
