Chairman Calls for Privacy Legislation
PRIVACY LAW—INDIAFebruary 18, 2011
Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata has called for a law to prevent against the invasion of individuals' privacy, The India Times reports. The call follows an incident last year in which Tata's private conversation with a corporate lobbyist was leaked to the media. Tata implored the Supreme Court to look into the leak and stop its publication. Tata says wiretapping and the publishing of such taps poses grave dangers to India, the report states. "There should be a law against invading people's privacy, unless it's for an investigative purpose," Tata said.
