The Right to Erasure or Right to be Forgotten had been first recognized in European Union Court. It was later incorporate in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is the building block for many Data Protection laws around the globe such as Turkey, Argentina, Japan. In India there was no regime which covered this right before the Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act, 2023. The only legislation which delt with data protection before the introduction of the Act was Information Technology Act, 2000 and Rules. The authors have made an attempt to analyze the scope of Right to be Forgotten in India with understanding the DPDP Act, 2023 with support of various judicial precedents by the Courts.
