Description

The book has undergone another round of revision in preparation of the 28th Edition. It is generally understood that courts exist to provide remedies in support of legal rights and these legal rights continue to evolve with the changing society. A nine judge bench of the Supreme Court of India has recognized the right to Privacy as a fundamental right emanating out of the provisions of Article 21 and other provisions of the Constitution relating to fundamental rights. Thus, in India, right to privacy, in addition to being a common law right, has a constitutional status. This will have wide ramifications, both for the State, as also the individual. Earlier to such declaration by the Supreme Court its precise limits were yet to be established. In Kharak Singh's case it was held that police surveillance of a person, by domiciliary visists and other acts, to be valid must be supported by law and must be unobtrusive and reasonable for the purpose of prevention of crime by potential offenders. Telephone tapping also violates right to privacy under Article 21 unless it is in accordance with procedure established by law which lays down proper safeguard.
