Centre’s Order on Computer Surveillance Is Now Backed by the Law

Centre’s Order on Computer Surveillance Is Now Backed by the Law

The Ministry of Home Affairs has now issued a statutory order which has authorised 10 agencies that focuses on security and intelligence. These agencies will be intercepting, monitoring and decrypting electronic information and communication. The ministry had replied through a press release saying that the order was initiated while keeping in mind Section 69(1) of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Furthermore, the Information Technology (Procedure and Safeguards for Interception, Monitoring and Decryption of Information) Rules, 2009, were also considered. Thus, proving that the order was only taken after going through the law and also many government officials and BharatiyaJanata Party representatives have defended this order. It is because everyone feels it is India’s sovereign and national security interest. Surely this is something to consider and many experts also feel the same. 

These Experts say that it will bring transparency and accountability into surveillance, which is actually an extension of the previous Congress-led government’s policy from 2009. This amendment is now one of the many changes that are introduced in order to tackle criminal activities such as terrorism, or other such attacks. Surely the surveillance framework of India is about to improve even more. Something to look forward in the coming years for India.
