Information on court judgements regarding adoption or custody are sensitive in nature and cannot be linked via search engines like google n be published openly on Indian Kanoon. Org

While I do agree that there should be some redaction at a personal level.

Regarding the Google linking, etc.:

Can you at least block Google/Yahoo from accessing my judgment?
Yes but only for cases of divorce, maintenance, child adoption and child custody. The cases from the Supreme Court will not be blocked. Send an email to [email protected] with the link/URL of the case on Indian Kanoon. The requests are examined in a batch once 2-3 weeks and will take time.

Same. I agree that court judgments on search indexes should be available only with legal keywords.

But once published, it gets rehosted on multiple online databases not just IK

Proceedings such as this Delhi High Court IA shed light on the procedure to get name redacted in civil proceedings so parties should inform their advocates accordingly X vs Y on 4 June, 2021
