Recently we have noticed that some states have made the list of persons who are under quarantine public in the guise of public monitoring. This is excessive and a disproportionate invasion into the privacy of the individuals under quarantine.

We urge the government to resort to strict legal measures to regulate and supervise the collection, and subsequent processing of personal data of individuals during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

We urge the government to restore 4G services in Jammu and Kashmir so that its citizens can get timely information during these times of great distress.

This is an excessive use of state power, disproportionately infringing the persons' right to privacy. The state should remove the names and home addresses of the persons under quarantine.
