Digital cloud for every Indian? An interesting direction taken by the new PM, Mr. Modi, is to have a digital cloud for all Indians, that would hold each citizen's certificates issued by the government â€” education, residential, medical records, birth certificates etc.. This would no longer require an individual to travel places carrying his valuable certificates, and can be accessed by anyone. Thus, a student seeking admission, or a graduate seeking a job, can simply walk into the examination or interview location, and his credentials can be verified prima facie. This can also serve as an example of electronic governance, which has various benefits, apart from those intended by the planned initiative by the Indian Government, which is being touted as MyGov.in. Now, the question arises, what are the safeguards? Will this become another source of surveillance over the citizens, just like the phone tapping scandal by NSA? Surely, a person who has done nothing wrong, should have nothing to hide. Yet, should we be concerned about our privacy? Now, assuming this were made mandatory for every citizen, although it is unlikely it will be, and it is not yet relevant to India per se, would it then, philosophically, counter the Right to be Forgotten?
