The “Privacy Jurisprudence” is a seven decade old and has been highly debated. Earlier Supreme Court rulings in M.P. Sharma vs. Satish Chandra, DM, Delhi (1954) and Kharak Singh vs. State of UP (1962), have rejected the right to privacy as fundamental right, under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. However, the legal controversy was put to rest only last year, when a nine judge bench of the Hon’ble Supreme Court in Justice K.S. Puttaswamy (Retd.) vs. Union of India (2017) 10 SCC 1) have unanimously agreed that right to privacy is fundamental right under Article 21. The judgement is historic and unprecedented in India. A legal challenge to Aadhar Act, may be decided by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, in the light of the said landmark ruling.
The National Seminar, 2018 , on “ Right To Privacy in the Contemporary Legal Environment” will have a technical and detailed deliberations on the legal implications of the latest ruling of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India. The National Seminar, 2018 will witness the presence of legal fraternity and the students of law. Several new facets and themes will be explored in the form of research papers to be presented by the participants. National Seminar, 2018 will also witness presentations and deliberations by the Experts and Jurists on the subject.
