hearings in the Supreme Court has been the Data Privacy Committee set up in August under the Chairmanship of Justice (retd) BN Srikrishna (formerly on the Supreme Court) to work towards a law on data privacy It was notified in July during the course of the hearings on Privacy before the five-Judge Constitutional bench Now 22 eminent citizens including a former Chief Justice of a High Court a former Chief Information Commissioner senior advocates a former Governor former Vice Chancellors and petitioners in the privacy matter have written to the Committee expressing their discomfiture at the composition of the Committee and asked that it be more broad-based; “Most members on the current committee have in the past voiced or echoed views that seem to support Aadhaar the brand created by the UIDAI Some have even taken stands in the Supreme Court to challenge the fundamental right to privacy A committee created to look at a fundamental issue which will impact this country needs to be balanced and cannot be biased towards one position particularly when there might be conflicts of interest” The Committee set up under the auspices of the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) to deliberate on a Data Protection Framework has on board ten members including the Chairman UIDAI other government officials and others with known and stated positions on the matter The signatories have called for more transparency in the functioning of the ministry and explicitly said; “We would like to put forth the suggestion that all meeting notes may be made available to citizens and submissions by members be pro-actively disclosed as the deliberations proceed We strongly urge that all documents referred to by the committee in their deliberations be shared publicly and contemporaneously to enable meaningful engagement with the work of the committee” Speaking of the Right to Privacy needing to find “complementarity” with the Right to information they have called for including more Information activists to be kept in the loop and made part of the Committee As part of an earlier initiative the Justice AP Shah Committee which included government officials and many members of civil society had submitted its report on October 16 2012 The letter cites that like in the previous effort more diversity of opinions to be taken on board in the Committee of Experts The letter expresses concern that; “This is an effort to restrict and make accountable the powers of the state and commercial entities involved in these activities Given the current scenario where ‘data is the new oil’ any understanding of the impact of policy will necessitate the inclusion of civil society members who have been examining the impact of such initiatives on democratic rights This includes matters of privacy surveillance aggregation of data the commercial collection of data and its use and more broadly data used to restrict constitutional and other rights” The signatories are part of initiative by ‘Rethink Aadhaar’ and include: ex-Chief Justice of Delhi High Court AP Shah former Chief Information Commissioner Wajahat Habibullah Privacy Petitioners Maj Gen (retd) SG Vombatkere Prof Anupam Saraph and Aruna Roy Senior Advocates Prashant Bhushan and Indira Jaising former Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi Prof Tarlochan Sastry and Prof Jagdeep Chokkhar of the Association for Democratic Reforms among several Information activists The full text of the letter is as follows: To Hon’ble Justice (Rtd) Shri BN Srikrishna Former Judge Supreme Court of India Chairperson Committee of Experts on Data Protection Framework Email : [email protected]; [email protected] November 5th 2017 Dear Hon’ble Justice Srikrishna Subject: Letter of concern on the Office Memorandum No3(6)/2017-CLES dated July 31 2017 constituting a committee of experts to deliberate on a Data Protection Framework This letter is the initiative of Rethink Aadhaar – a group of concerned citizens who have come together to examine the lack of regulations and guidelines in use of various forms of data using technology We are alarmed and dismayed at the potentially grave implications of large databases curtailing fundamental rights and democratic principles The most glaring example of gathering and disseminating such data is Aadhaar This group of concerned citizens is worried about non-transparency in the “Committee of Experts to deliberate on and recommend a data protection framework for India” Its composition and selection of members is also problematic While we are confident that you and your office will strive to be fair and balanced we would like to place before you the matter of inadequate representation within the committee It is desirable that the composition of the committee should be diverse to bring in various opinions on what is now a contentious issue into the deliberations of the committee It would also help to bring the point of view of the citizen within the privacy and data protection draft framework particularly with regard to issues of consent It is vital that the idea of consent be central to the proposed data protection framework The framework must be both relevant to people and take into consideration Indian realities so that citizens are able to differentiate between manufactured and informed consent Consent must be understood in the context of the interconnectedness of data to many aspects of democratic principles and rights There can be no argument that data protection is not merely about the protection of data but really about the protection of people This is an effort to restrict and make accountable the powers of the state and commercial entities involved in these activities Given the current scenario where ‘data is the new oil’ any understanding of the impact of policy will necessitate the inclusion of civil society members who have been examining the impact of such initiatives on democratic rights This includes matters of privacy surveillance aggregation of data the commercial collection of data and its use and more broadly data used to restrict constitutional and other rights Another critical aspect of the data protection framework is to define a complementary relationship between the right to information and the right to privacy For this we strongly recommend the inclusion of representatives of the Right to Information movement Most members on the current committee have in the past voiced or echoed views that seem to support Aadhaar the brand created by the UIDAI Some have even taken stands in the Supreme Court to challenge the fundamental right to privacy A committee created to look at a fundamental issue which will impact this country needs to be balanced and cannot be biased towards one position particularly when there might be conflicts of interest There is a precedent set by the Government of India where the drafting privacy and data protection law included people from varied backgrounds One such attempt was through the Justice AP Shah Committee that submitted its report on October 16 2012 This report brought in the views of many sectors of civil society This practice may be seen as a positive precedent and we strongly urge that it be followed in the composition of the current committee as well In view of the fact that your committee allows for co-option we request you to please consider including the names of eminent citizens who have been consistent in advocating for peoples’ rights We believe their induction in the committee will increase diversity and ensure that civil society voices are adequately represented while deliberating on a complex code of far-reaching importance The wealth of experience such people could bring to the committee should not be underestimated We further ask you to kindly take steps to ensure high transparency in the working of the committee We would like to put forth the suggestion that all meeting notes may be made available to citizens and submissions by members be pro-actively disclosed as the deliberations proceed We strongly urge that all documents referred to by the committee in their deliberations be shared publicly and contemporaneously to enable meaningful engagement with the work of the committee Further we trust that when a draft of the recommendations is prepared it will be put up for public consultation for wider input As people who use digital technology every day for communication banking research travel bookings security entertainment as well as for the more efficient delivery of welfare benefits we have concerns about the data and platforms being generated through all these activities and their use We would be grateful if you could meet some of us and give us the opportunity to further discuss these issues in detail We hope you would consider this letter as part of the pre-legislative process in the creation of a data protection framework With thanks and regards Justice

Photo/Manish Swarup) Top News As we transition from the monsoon to winter the temporary respite in air pollution is over A combination of festivals post-harvest crop burning firing of brick kilns and reduced wind speed will soon increase the level of particulate air pollution in India The Global Burden of Disease study estimates that in India ambient air pollution is responsible for 3283 premature deaths every day Half of the top 20 polluted cities in the world are in India India has seen the steepest increase in air pollution since 2010 Although China achieved global notoriety some years ago it is India that has experienced a nearly 150 per cent increase in ozone-attributable deaths over the past 25 years In comparison the number of people who died due to diseases caused by pollution in China did not increase much in the same period Till now almost all air pollution-related deaths were thought to be due to lung diseases Evidence however is accumulating that links short and long-term exposure to air pollution with other diseases — these include heart attacks stroke diabetes chronic kidney disease and cancer In fact the highest proportion of pollution-related deaths especially those related to particulate matter may not be because of diseases of lungs but due to these other conditions Studies have shown that ultrafine particulate matter which accounts for over 90 per cent of the particles emitted by road traffic rapidly enters the bloodstream after being inhaled These particles then interfere with the normal reactivity of blood vessels and are distributed to many organs including the kidneys Even when it does not kill air pollution reduces the number of years lived in full health by aggravating asthma attacks eye and skin disorders and increasing the risk of development of high blood pressure obesity Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases psychiatric disorders and frailty Air pollution affects all stages of life starting from pre-conception to old age Exposure of a mother while pregnant causes abnormalities that increase the lifetime risk of chronic diseases in the baby These associations have been shown in large population-based studies done either in a cross-sectional manner — that is examining the differences based on residence in areas with different levels of pollution — or in a longitudinal manner where changing levels of pollution in the same area is associated with increasing disease risk after all other factors are accounted for On the positive side remedial measures have shown reduction in the number of individuals with adverse outcomes including improved life expectancy in several parts of the world Policy interventions before the Beijing Olympics in China led to significant reduction in pollution and this in turn reflected in significant improvement in people’s physiology This will be a long battle We need better urban planning starting with proper land-use assessment reducing major transport activity close to communities relocating traffic sources (roads airports) from crowded areas avoiding the mixing of industrial and residential areas making better roads reducing uncovered areas in cities by planting more grass and plants improving transport technologies and increasing awareness of the societal burden imposed by air pollution Interdisciplinary academic groups including experts in toxicology environmental health analytical chemistry applied physics healthcare researchers economists and social scientists should evaluate the full range of impacts of air pollution on human health develop tools to identify pollutants find origin of particles and develop culturally-appropriate solutions The writer is executive director of The George Institute for Global Health India For all the latest
