India launches tool to monitor the population

The Indian government has launched in the last month a system that monitors the communications of the citizens of the country, including text messages, online activity and telephone calls.

As reported by Times of india, the State promises to use the Central Monitoring tool within the terms of the law, although it has not specified what type of conversations they intend to monitor and what they are actually looking for.

US $ 7.4 million was spent on the development of the system, which has been tested since 2009. It provides investigative agencies, from a single point, access to the digital tracks of all citizens.

Digital law experts told the Times that the tool “is capable of tremendous abuse”. Precisely because it does not specify what type of action to be observed.
