08 Mar Now, an expanded horizon of surveillance (GS-2 Governance)
Cyber Crime Volunteers Program:
- Under Ministry of homeaffairs
- Works under Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre(I4C)
- It will help in identifying, reporting and in the removal of illegal/unlawful online content.
- It will act as lateral surveillance: Peer-Peer Survilliance
It is not today but a decade old practice to have check and balance by the society.
- Same thing done in USA about surveillance system, i.e. including the people into system
- Effect was a decrease in crime, more neighbourhood
- C-Plan App in .UP. was launched for keeping a tab on anti-social elements.
- It’s scope was very much enlarged during lockdown Issue:
- Privacy can be undermined.
- Both social control as well as social exclusion.
- g. In south Korea LGBT community came underexclusive surveillance
- It will have tendency to increase intolerance, prejudice, xenophobia and casteism in our society.
