MediaNama Daily: The Great Indian Surveillance Spectacle

Key findings from the ‘Status of Policing in India’ report, policy body alleges OpenAI of consumer rights violation, and much more.

?If There’s One Story To Read Today  Are Indians aware of the extent of surveillance they are under? A recent study says no. In fact, the study cautions of an emerging surveillance state where the public is not really alarmed by the spying activities of the State. A survey of over 9,700 individuals across 12 Indian states and UTs shows that nearly half of the respondents are okay with surveillance tools like CCTVs, facial recognition systems, and drones being used by the government and the police. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, more Indians are also in favour of the government using these tools to quell dissent and protests. The report ‘Status of Policing in India’ also reveals how socio-economic and demographic factors affect the degree of support for surveillance. The findings raise questions about people's understanding of surveillance and their right to privacy. Find out what the public mood is and stay tuned for our upcoming reports that delve deeper into the survey results and its implications for citizens' privacy and digital rights.
