[h=1]Delhi banker seeks `right to be forgotten' online[/h]Abhinav Garg | TNN | May 1, 2016, 05.32 AM IST

NEW DELHI: Does Right to Life under the Constitution also include "right to be forgotten" online? The Delhi high court opened up the issue for legal scrutiny, and sought the response of the Centre, Google, and an online law compendium on the matter.

Earlier this week, Justice Manmohan had admitted a plea filed by a Delhi banker, who wanted his personal details to be removed from online search engines.

Seeking online anonymity, the man told HC that "right to be forgotten" is a recognisable prerogative in Europe post the landmark judgment by European Court of Justice in the case of Google vs Mario Costeja.

Under the right to be forgotten, an individual can make a request to search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing to take down his/her personal details in certain circumstances to prevent access of confidential information by third parties.

The banker said he was upset after details of his marital dispute, which was settled in court a few years ago, kept surfacing online. He found that a website called Indian Kanoon had reported on the dispute. Other details related to the case were also available on Google and other search engines.[h=2]Top Comment[/h]This is the first step for Right to DIE as a normal for a person ! LOL !Sainath Kalpathy

Advocates Rohit Madan and Akash Vajpayi appearing on behalf of the banker, said he is now living happily with his wife and son. His wife, in an affidavit to the court, had stated that the dispute had been settled. In such a case the banker has a right to seek removal of personal information on the internet.

HC has asked Google and the other authorities to file a reply by September 19. The case is significant as it seeks HC's intervention in a sphere where there are no clear laws despite growing concerns of invasion of privacy.
