new Delhi. The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has today filed a petition in the Supreme Court to dismiss WhatsApp and Facebook (Facebook) for its new privacy policy. CAIT has said in its petition that the proposed privacy policy of WhatsApp is infringing on the various fundamental rights of citizens provided by the Constitution of India. Cait said that to operate large technology companies like WhatsApp, the central government should formulate guidelines and formulate policies that protect the privacy of citizens and businesses.




This petition specifically cites a complete gap in the privacy policy of WhatsApp in European Union countries and India. The petition said, how can the data of Indian users be misused by such big technology companies. This petition has been prepared by Advocate Abir Roy, which has been filed in the Supreme Court today by Advocate on Record Vivek Narayan Sharma.

CAIT Accuses of Fraudulently Collecting Data

The National President of CAiT Mr. BC Bhartia and National General Secretary Mr. Praveen Khandelwal alleged that WhatsApp has adopted the ‘My Way or High Way’ approach, which is arbitrary, unfair, unconstitutional And it cannot be accepted in a democratic country like India. WhatsApp is fraudulently collecting personal user data. At the time of its launch in India, WhatsApp attracted users based on a promise not to share data and strong privacy principles.

Changes were also made in 2014

It was only in 2014, after Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp, that users began to doubt the confidentiality of their data. Because he feared that his personal data would be shared with Facebook. At that time, WhatsApp promised that nothing would change in the privacy policy after the takeover. However, in August 2016, WhatsApp backed out of its promise and introduced a new privacy policy in which it severely compromised the rights of its users and completely undermined the privacy rights of users.

Under the new privacy policy, it shared personal data with Facebook and all of its group companies for commercial advertising and marketing. Since then the company has been changing its policies so that a wide range of information can be collected and processed, and data can be passed on to third parties.
