Har Ghar Privacy Violation?

As India celebrates Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav, Indians across the nation were encouraged to geo-tag their own homes under the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign. Back in August, we wrote to the Ministry of Culture, highlighting the specific deficiencies in the harghartiranga[dot]com website and its privacy policy. Even though the website states that the data collected will be deleted at the end of the campaign, i.e., after August 15, the data is still up on the website. Concerned with the consequent privacy implications, we once again wrote to the Ministry today, urging them to delete the data at the earliest.
