Delhi HC directs MHA to clarify its position on maintenance of e-surveillance data

To have an informed debate about the legal e-surveillance regime and practices in India, we filed RTI Applications seeking related information in 2018. We have not received this information till date, but we will continue to pursue it.

CIC admonishes the MHA and seeks confirmation on affidavit of destruction of surveillance data

IFF had filed six RTIs with the MHA seeking data on the e-surveillance. MHA first denied information on grounds of national security and later claimed that the data did not exist. CIC has admonished the CPIO for changing its stance and sought confirmation on non-availability of data on affidavit.
