'Right to privacy' opens door for data protection Law

One of the highlights in the Supreme Court's ruling on "Right to Privacy" includes informational privacy in the digital age.

The judgement urged the government to bring in data protection law in an effort to ensure the privacy of citizens. It has been recommended that the government seek guidance from the European Union Regulation of 2016 of the European Parliament and the Council of 27 April 2016. The nine-judge bench of apex court gave historic verdict on issues, including Aadhar, civil liberties and gay rights.
