Flagging privacy concerns with Har Ghar Tiranga 2.0
The Har Ghar Tiranga 2.0 campaign by the Ministry of Culture set out to display the names and pictures of Indian citizens holding the tricolour on its website for a stipulated period, to celebrate India’s 76 years of independence. Except, user data is still displayed on the website.
The Har Ghar Tiranga campaign ended on August 15, 2022. However, the data collected under the campaign is still available on the website. We wrote to the Ministry of Culture to highlight this grave privacy violation.
