Even with the adoption of legal and protection, violation of privacy remains a concern. Privacy denotes a state of life, free from unreasonable interference. It ensures everyone a life to live with one's own choice. The desire for privacy is a common criterion among human beings. Hence, privacy is not simply an absence of information about us in the mind of others; rather it is the control we have over the information about ourselves! The demand for privacy is the basic human right by virtue of being human and has continued for ages since the inception of human civilization. In the present state-of-art development, the level of consciousness and awareness of people has increased a lot and hence the protection of privacy has become a major concern with the advancement of technology. With the advent of globalization, information and communication technology has reached great heights. Nonetheless, the world has turned into a smaller place where people can gather any information around the world by sitting in one place. On one hand, it can never be denied that the internet and communication development has made our lives much easier, but on the other hand, they carry a great threat to our privacy. . As has been already mentioned above, the quest for privacy among the people began since early societies. The right to privacy gained prominence during the development of the Common law period. During that time, the concept of privacy was considered only in terms of property. As such, violation of privacy resulted in simple torts such as, trespass, nuisance, etc., which were to be remedied by paying compensation to the injured as it is continued till today. In addition to that, privacy was dealt in accordance with the provisions of law which either dealt with land or tax, etc., in almost every country. The paper focuses upon the Right to privacy in indian perspectives as well as In the international Perspective and ends with the various dimential measures to ensuring individuals privacy at digital platforms or with usage of AI.
