Now the focus would be on reasonable restrictions
The verdict is finally out, that privacy is a fundamental right, by a unanimous decision of the nine-judge Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court.

Now those who want to usurp the rights would concentrate on reasonable restrictions saying that for disbursal of welfare schemes, collection of tax and the like there can be infringement on privacy.

It is actually not like that. Reasonable restrictions on fundamental rights have originally been defined. And there can be no deviation.

Accordingly under Article 19 (2), the state may make a law imposing reasonable restrictions on the exercise of the right to freedom of speech and expression 'in the interest of' the security of the State, public order, decency, morality, sovereignty, and integrity of India, or ' in relation to contempt of Court.

And that is all, and no further.
