Legislative Brief on Digital Rights | Monsoon Session 2022

Hello all,

We are pleased to share our brief on digital rights in India for the Monsoon Session of the Indian Parliament.

In our brief, we have analyzed the connectivity and digital accessibility data, status of implementation of schemes, developments in significant areas of digital governance, various consultations held in the previous quarter, milestone events in technology policy and issues requiring urgent parliamentary interventions such as surveillance over sanitation workers, misuse of social media by political parties, concerns around freedom of speech online and the resultant threat to bodily integrity in the physical space.

This brief is a result of the combined efforts by Policy Director @prateekwaghre, Associate Policy Counsel @tejasi_panjiar, Associate Counsel @Anushka, CCG Digital Fellow Amala Dasarathi, Digital Literacy Fellow @ashlesh, Legal Intern @Rudraksh Lakra, Policy Intern @Alisha, and myself.

We invite our community members to engage with the brief, and as always, write to us with any feedback, suggestions or comments! If there is something you like, do let us know about that too. Please feel free to share the brief with your networks and on your social media.

In case you are intrigued and would like to remain updated on your digital rights in the Parliament, join us on our IFFOnParliament Twitter handle and our discussion group on Telegram!
