In light to the NSCS’s (National Security Council Secretariat) recommendations, the government of India is planning to set a large scale tracking and monitoring unit for watching the content sharing activities of users through social network sites like Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, and so on. Though it is not for the first time when the NSCS has recommended the government to set up a monitoring unit, yet this time, it might affect the government’s idea to monitor large scale supervision.
All about the recent development in this lieu:
- According to the report presented by The Logical India, the Prime Minister’s office has asked the ministries to reportedly take action against anything negative portrayed against the interest of Indian government.
- Ponnurangam Kumarguru, an Assistant Professor from Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology in Delhi, has designed software for tracking and monitoring social network acti
- Along with tracking and monitoring the social activities, the software will provide analysis of past records (both presented in the positive or negative manner).
- By for now, the government has not officially decided to set a benchmark of positive or negative monitoring.
- The government is more likely to allocate resources for the tracking and monitoring of activities.
The freedom to express is not a personal asset- it is rather a social gift. As long as you are in the social platform, you should refrain yourself from using opinionate judgment. However, the government should also clearly define the context of monitoring and tracking social profiles of users.
