Privacy is an intrinsic right of every individual; it is a right to be let alone, the right of a person to be free from any unwarranted interference. Further, privacy is an elementary human right which is mentioned under the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Right to privacy is a facet of human dignity and also relates to essential rights such as freedom of association and the freedom of speech. It has become one of the pertinent human rights issues of the modern age. Almost every country in the world recognizes the right of privacy implicitly or expressly in their respective constitutions. However, the advent of technology posed certain challenges and to address these challenges the laws and necessary rules are framed in order to protect the privacy. The articles made an attempt by analyzing the judicial stand by refereeing important judgments to find the judicial view in protecting the right of privacy as fundamental right.
