Centre says privacy not a fundamental right
In the right to privacy case before the nine-judge Constitution bench in Supreme Court today, Attorney General K K Venugopal argued that privacy does not enjoy the status of a fundamental right.

"Privacy is part of Right to Life under Article 21, but does not enjoy the status of a fundamental right," said AG Venugopal on behalf of the Centre.

The debate on privacy as a fundamental right is a part of the larger debate on Aadhaar and if the scheme violates one's right to privacy.

The Centre has earlier said that petitions challenging the validity of Aadhaar over violation of privacy cannot be entertained under Article 21.

Kapil Sibal, appearing for the states Karnataka, West Bengal and Puducherry, told the nine-judge bench headed by Chief Justice J S Khekar that the states support the petitioners on the argument that privacy is a fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution.

Kapil Sibal said that while privacy is not mentioned in the Constitution of America and Australia but it is a fundamental right.
