Description
This book contains the entire Law of Privacy in India as it stands today. Both the causes of action to protect privacy are covered: the first to protect privacy when invaded by the State subject to writ remedy, and the second when invaded by a private individual, say, a newspaper or media channel, when the remedy is to file a civil suit and claim an injunction and compensation. The strength of this book is that it sets out the complete theoretical structure of Privacy Law and the complete practical mechanisms to obtain actual relief in a court of law. By using this book, any person would be able to file a privacy action in a writ court or a civil court.
Privacy Law is not as well developed in India as it is in many foreign jurisdictions. Many privacy law principles contained in International Treaties and Conventions to which India is a party are not fully known or appreciated. Thus, the other great feature of this book is that it provides a detailed comparison of Privacy Law in foreign jurisdictions and fully explains the implications of International Privacy Principles for Privacy Law in India.
Thus, this book is a complete guide to obtain relief in privacy related matters in Indian courts based on the law as it stands in India, while at the same time providing a framework for how Privacy Law should grow and develop.
The notable features of the book are that it:
1.    Discusses important privacy issues such as right of privacy vis-a-vis search and
        seizure, telephone tapping, online interception, etc.
2.    Includes relevant Indian and foreign case law.
3.    Examines the statutory framework in .various sectors that is relevant to privacy.
4.    Includes important Supreme Court judgments, High Court judgments,
       statutory materials and Legislative Proposals.
5.    Links to http://www.ebcexplorer.com to assess Indian and international
       case law, international statutory materials and international and regional
       treaties on privacy.
