#Privacyofthepeople: 91 problems but this ain’t one

Delhi Police issued a notice to Razorpay under Section 91 of the Criminal Procedure Code, 1973 (“Section 91”) while it was investigating Mr Mohammad Zubair, a fact-checker and founder of Alt-News. In compliance with the notice, Razorpay shared the personal information of donors of Alt-News without informing Alt-News or the donors. In this #Privacyofthepeople post, we explain the scope of Section 91 notices, how they may impact your right to privacy and what remedies you have under law. Since IFF uses Razorpay to receive donations, we also explain the steps we are taking to protect donor privacy.
