CCTV Not Covered in Draft Law
SURVEILLANCE—INDIAJune 21, 2013
Those whose images are captured via CCTV in public places “will not be able to invoke the proposed privacy law to seek redress,” The Indian Express reports. That is one provision of the draft privacy bill “likely to be tabled in Parliament's forthcoming session,” the report states, noting the bill does include the creation of a national body to hold individuals, organizations and others accountable for audio and video recording. The bill “addresses the home ministry's concern that interception laws must not change and that footage from security cameras in public places are kept out of the ambit of the new law," officials said.
