A bench comprising Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian said that the tech giant might have deep coffers but it is their privacy that people value more than money. "You may be $2-3 trillion company but people's privacy is more valuable for them and it is our duty to protect their privacy," said the court.
Senior Counsel Shyam Divan said that there is no data protection law in India. "We are impressed by Mr. Divan's argument that it was proposed before us that a data protection law would be brought into force," said CJI Bobde.
