Hearing Against WhatsApp In January 2023, This Bill To Be Introduced In Parliament Soon
During the hearing on Thursday, a five-judge constitution bench headed by Justice KM Joseph has asked the parties to present their arguments in the matter by December 15. A bench of Justice Ajay Rastogi, Justice Aniruddha Bose, Justice Hrishikesh Roy and Justice CT Ravikumar said, "We wish to adjourn the matter till January 17, 2023, for final hearing."
The apex court was hearing a petition filed by two students, Karmanya Singh Sareen and Shreya Sethi. Students say that sharing calls, photos, texts, videos, and documents shared by users with any other company are a violation of their privacy and free speech. Social media companies should not be arbitrary regarding the personal data of the user.
