Guess who we heard from? NCRB responds to IFF's legal notice, we promptly reply.

We sent a legal notice to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) on August 18, 2019 to halt and recall the invitation for bids for the implementation of a centralised Automated Facial Recognition System (AFRS) put out on June 28, 2019 with extremely worrying features of the system. With no response, we sent a follow up on October 31, 2019, to which we received a very detailed reply by the NCRB on November 5, 2019. Excitedly, we readied ourselves to send across a rejoinder to their response but much to our dismay, we largely had to restate our original asks.
