The Supreme Court will decide whether privacy is a fundamental right

Fodder Points for Mains:

  • Two earlier judgements of the court — M P Sharma’s case in 1954 and Kharak Singh’s case in 1962 — had held that privacy was not a fundamental right.

  • Articles 19(1)(f) — right to acquire, hold and dispose of property — and 20(3) — protection against self incrimination.

  • Fundamental rights under Articles 19(1)(d) — right to freedom of movement — and 21 — protection of life and personal liberty.
