New Delhi: The apex court has issued notice to the Centre on a plea challenging government’s notification on monitoring computer system.
The highest court of the land has directed the Centre to submit its response within six weeks on Monday.
It may be recalled that a PIL was filed in the Supreme Court challenging December 20 notification of the Central government’s notification on this score.
The notification of the government has empowered ten central probe and snoop agencies under the Information Technology (IT) Act for interception and analysis of computer system in the country.
The notification has invited widespread criticism of the Central government on the snooping of computer system across the country.
