Supreme Court notice to Centre over MHA order giving snooping power to 10 central agencies


The Supreme Court on Monday issued a notice to the central government over its notification allowing agencies to monitor any computer resource. The top court issued the notice while hearing a public interest litigation (PIL), which challenged the order of Ministry of Home Affairs allowing 10 agencies to intercept, monitor and decrypt any information generated, transmitted, received or stored in any computer in India.

Seeking a response to the notice from the Centre within six weeks, the Supreme Court said that it would examine the issue concerning the government order released on December 20, 2018.
