FSMI General Secretery files writ petition on data breaches in Delhi High Court

FSMI General Secretary Y. Kiran Chandra has filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court with a plea demanding Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-IN) to investigate large scale data breaches in the country. FSMI over the past several months has sent several representations to CERT-IN, requesting them to act on data breaches in the country and provide us a response under their citizen charter. CERT-IN has not replied to any of our representations forcing us to send a legal notice which also did not yield any tangible response.

After taking legal advice from our advocates Prasanth Sugathan and Prasanna S, Y. Kiran Chandra(FSMI General Secretary) has filed a writ petition in Delhi High Court. The Petition WP(C) 8406/2021 - Y Kiran Chandra v Union of India was listed in the court room of Honorable Judge Rekha Palli. The matter has been further posted for September 23rd when Union of India is expected to respond to our petition.

The petition document is available as an attachment for everyone concerned.
