COAI, together with CIS, will be holding seven such Privacy and Surveillance Roundtables across multiple cities in India in the coming weeks.These roundtables are closed-door meetings involving multiple stakeholders such as the industry leaders, policy makers, experts from legal fraternity, civil society, etc. The agenda of Roundtables is to discuss possible legal frameworks for surveillance in India. The recommendations and dialogues from each of these roundtables will be compiled and submitted to the relevant ministries of the Government of India.

Talking to the media on the occasion, the COAI Director General Rajan S Mathews said,“In the era of freedom, when data connectivity via the internet, has emerged as one of the most powerful tools for communications, infringement of customer privacy by government agencies through telecom networks have forced the industry to initiate discussions on the international best practices on communications privacy &surveillance, and the relevant Indian jurisprudence.COAI, with the Centre for Internet and Society,has taken this initiative by bringing the relevant stakeholders on a common platform to discuss the matter to arrive at an acceptable conclusion.”
