Right to privacy is real sensitive issue with so much stuff and interaction on the internet, and most organizations asking for individuals personal information. The key question is, “If give personal information like names, parents’ name, passport number, Aadhar card, drivers license, etc. are given for a particular purpose, then is there a reasonable expectation that such personal information will be used only for that purpose or not. Will organizations use that to do marketing, will they sell it, are they legally required to protect the information so the individual faces no harm?” As the common man, each of us should ask yourself – this is the minimum expectation. As has happened in other countries, our Supreme Court is dealing with this sensitive question.
