National  Seminar on Reflection of Privacy Laws in Contemporary Era  

Submit by Sept 12

About the Seminar
The Right to Privacy per say is not a specifically guaranteed fundamental right under the Constitution of India, however the apex court has time and again interpreted it indirectly as a part and parcel of fundamental rights. There have been instances in various cases decided by the apex court. The right to privacy in India has come a long way from the decision given in Kharak Singh’s case which was one of the first instances which incorporated right to privacy with as an integral part of right to life and personal liberty. Subsequently, this right has come under the radar of reasonable restrictions under Article 19 (2) and with the different facets of this right been invoked by a plethora of judgments including the areas like privacy in communications, freedom of movement, physical privacy and mental privacy, Unique Identification Number related privacy, etc., there are still different facets of the right which need to be established. With the DNA Profiling Bill, again the discussion relating to right to privacy has come on the forefront. This Seminar is therefore an attempt to analyse the right to privacy from different perspectives and check the status of this right.
