  5. In "A fundamental error" (The Hindu, August 1), Apar Gupta and Ujwala Uppaluri allege that the Srikrishna Committee has undermined and reinterpreted the legal principles in the right to privacy judgment. Neither the report nor the Bill does anything of that sort. In August 2017, the Supreme Court declared the right to privacy a fundamental right and observed that informational privacy is a key facet of this right. In the wake of the judgment, the court said that the state must create a regime for informational privacy which protects individuals from harm that originates from state and non-state actors. Though the Committee was constituted prior to the iudgment, this was undoubtedly its task, as stated in its report. S. UBHODEEP


  6. Let us now move to the two key points raised in the article. The first "provocative" claim made is that the Supreme Court has held that the individual is the beneficiary of fundamental rights. This is indeed a provocative claim. To see individuals as the primary beneficiaries of rights is a misreading of the Constitution. The Preamble of the Constitution speaks of a people who value liberty, equality, fraternity and justice. Much like other fundamental rights, the right to privacy is a means to achieve this collective goal of a free and just society. S. UBHODEEP


  7. The report makes this point as clear as possible when it notes that the importance of a right in this account is not because of the benefit that accrues to the rights-holder but because that benefit is a public good. In other words, there is an important societal interest which is furthered by protecting the right to privacy. Quote Justice D.Y. Chandrachud who notes that the "individual is the focal point of the Constitution because it is in the rights that the collective well being of the community is determined". Evidently this statement does not reduce rights to tools that solely further individual interests. realisation of individual UBHODEEP


  8. Privacy is a fundamental right not merely because I value it or stand to but because we as a society value it and stand to benefit benefit from it, but because we as a society value it and stand to beneft from it. second claim. The authors suggest that the report endorses a view that the right to privacy dissolves in the face of amorphous claims of economic development. The Committee specifically emphasises that protecting the autonomy of an individual is critical not simply for her own sake but because such autonomy is constitutive of the common good of a free and fair digital economy UBHODEEP


  9. the Committee observes that such an economy envisages a polity where the individual autonomously decides what to do with her personal data, entities responsibly share such data, and everyone uses data which have immense potential for empowerment, in a manner that promotes overall welfare Encourage the flow of information UBHODEEP
