Data Protection Laws of India

Posted on Posted in government, law

In the recent years India has emerged as one of the preferred destinations for offshore business outsourcing. Financial services, educational services, legal services, banking services, healthcare services, marketing services and telecommunication services . The factors that have turned India into one of the hotspots for offshore outsourcing are the educated and unemployed masses, enterprising nature of Indians who have excellent spoken English skills and relatively cheap labour.

In June 2005, one BPO was in the eye of the storm when one of its employees sold personal data belonging to a large number of British nationals to an undercover reporter from the British tabloid ‘The Sun’. The incident sparked off a debate among the offshore industry circles, media and the legal world as to how safe foreign data is in Indian hands. The discussions were also veered towards the need for some kind of protection for personal data in India which is absent currently.

Data Protection Issues have time and again raised concern in the authorities about the cyber extortion, privacy, confidentiality, data protection and national security. With the increasing penetration in the online usage of more and more people towards internet, e-banking, e-shopping etc. the concerns of data protection and related issues are growing day by day.

Privacy is closely connected to Data Protection. An individual’s data like his name address, telephone numbers, profession, family, choices, etc. are often available at various places like schools, colleges, banks, directories, surveys and on various web sites.

Passing on such information to interested parties can lead to intrusion in privacy like incessant marketing calls.

It would be a misnomer to say that India does not have ‘data protection’ legislation at all.

This is factually wrong. The fact is that there exists data protection legislation in India.

The subject matter of data protection and privacy has been dealt within the Information

Technology Act, 2000 but not in an exclusive manner.

Data protection is not a subject in any of the three lists in Schedule VII of the

Constitution of India. But Entry 97 of List 1 states: “any other matter not enumerated in

List II and List III …….” Thus only the Indian Parliament is competent to legislate on

data protection since it can be interpreted as any other matter not enumerated in List II

and List III.

Data protection is, thus, a Central subject and only the Central Government is competent

to frame legislations on issues dealing with data protection. In fact, the Information

Technology Act, 2000,and the Indian Copyright Act, 1957 , enacted by the Indian Parliament are the main legislations in this field, which contains provisions on data protection. There is also a proposed Personal Data Protection Bill, 2006, which deals with the protection of personal data.

THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY ACT, 2000

The Indian Parliament enacted an Act called the Information Technology Act, 2000. It

received the assent of the President on the 9th June, 2000 and is effective from 17th October, 2000. This Act is based on the Resolution A/RES/51/162 …

As an enterprise, PUMA also has set an example for “Peace One Day”. The most noteworthy thing is PUMA and his competitor Adidas eliminate estrangement. After nearly 60-year estrangement, PUMA and Adidas became reconciled in 2009, which corresponded with his advocacy “Peace One …

EMERGENCE OF IT & ITES- EFFECTS ON THE LABOUR LAWS

EMERGENCE OF IT & ITES- EFFECTS ON THE LABOUR LAWS

           

   India is a country having diverse religions and cultures. It becomes necessary to harmonize industrial relations in the country with respect to such diversity. India’s trade performance during 2003–04 was influenced by a number of factors which include productivity changes in the manufacturing sector, recovery of global economy and world trade, continued trade promotion and trade facilitation efforts of the government, and an appreciating Indian Rupee against the US dollar. Hence India has a wide variety of labour laws which are essential for the smooth functioning of industrial relations in the country. In today’s developing world IT has played an important role to formulate it into a new height. IT plays a role like a magnet, at one pole it is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. As such its magnetic field helps some aspects of life and affects some aspects of life. One of the most critical needs of the burgeoning Indian software industry and other outsourcing service providers is to have the flexibility and the independence to hire the most worthy of the manpower and fire the unproductive employees. There is also a growing need to draw a fine balance between the hire and fire policy of the employer and the rights of the workmen. This article proposes to discuss the Indian retrenchment laws, right of compensation of employees and applicability of these laws to Indian Information Technology (the “IT”) industry

MEANING-

Information Technology (IT) in a broad sense connotes that technology which is connected with information. More particularly it connotes that technology which has taken shape during the last five decades or so involving electronics.  THE Indian IT industry is among the country’s fastest growing sectors. India has been able to establish itself as a competitive and quality destination for outsourcing IT & IT enabled services.

The Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES) sector is spreading in India fast, and over five lakh workers and technicians are employed in it. We welcome the development of this sector as it is providing gainful employment to educated persons in India. Several centres in India have developed a large number of call centres and consultancy offices, which are earning enormous profits. Their number is likely to swell very fast in the near future. Accordingly to uphold the network of information technology in India IT Act came into force in 2000.

The use of such technology for the storage, retrieval and dissemination of information has given rise to several legal, social and ethical problems.

EFFECTS ON LABOUR LAWS-

         The direct affect of in formalisation has been deterioration in respect for labour rights. The provisions of large number of labour laws remain non-enforced. The adherence to the core labour standards remains good in paper only. The desire to get more FDI and pressure from the MNCs has caused the government to overlook violations. The ID Act which is applicable to all industrial and commercial establishments defines employee/workmen and both skilled and …

Endangered World Citizenship ?

ENDANGERED WORLD – CITIZENSHIP ?

We the world citizens are breathing in a very much insecure society with the increasing dimensions of newer techniques of creating nuisance, terror and ever increasing distrust among citizens world over. Bombs in the bus, train, cinema theatre, open market areas, aero planes and also lying on the garbage tins are only few exhibits of a few peoples’ hatred towards the progressive nations; innocent lives are becoming items of rampage. These inhuman acts are the outcome of free breeding corruption of excessively selfish, narrowly greedy and anti social persons widely distributed throughout the globe. Our irresponsible political leadership has fathered and faithfully nurtured these values for quite sometime, well above four decades. Even In India, we are now only preachers of peace but have always supported criminals and masked their inhuman acts as part and parcel of democracy. We were theoretically known as symbols of tolerance but as a national character now, we display complaints and dissatisfaction on every issue; we are said to believe in “forget and forgive”, but our instinct of taking revenge never calms down. This dualism of Indian practices has been most vividly viable for more than Fifty years; though said to be prevalent in all periods of human civilization. And this dualism or even pluralism of split personalities is rampant world over among all politicians, everywhere thus a common man is becoming an easy victim. This is principally on account of ever increasing economy at any and every cost and this global feature is the motive dogma of modern progress. To be honest in approach, economic progress is friendly to ethical values only in the beginning but soon becomes a bookish conjecture.

The new format of the society is non palatable to millions of simple, honest and humble citizens who believe in brotherhood, love to all human beings and duty as the foremost human religion: those who believe in second religion is an option of thoughts and way of life !!. I have counted heart beats of such people spread world over by way of personal talk, involving and sharing mutual respect.

Exhibition of hatred in the form of terrorism is the latest edition of quelling human values, feelings and ambitions of being a human being. Variable techniques of generating terror are continuously questioning our technological progress dependent-perversions. And the bitter truth is that we can never achieve perfect, clean and honest society. Not because such a society never existed anywhere but because, biologically, this is improbable, impossible and definitely imaginative. Perverts are always born, socially transformed /made, nurtured, and have always been “domesticated” by power.
I intend to enlighten on all these points on the basis of my own studies accumulated as by products of my principal focus in areas of Genetics, focusing principally on reproduction, survival strategies and adaptive behavior in plants and animals including humans …

Industrialisation and Nigeria's 2020 Goals

Posted on Posted in government

Just days after the announcement and even before the survey could be launched, the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria came out with a startling report identifying 37 companies that had closed down across the country over a space of just two weeks. The report once again confirms the bitter state of affairs of the Nigerian economy, where closures are a frequent and constant refrain. A complete account of contemporary Nigerian industry is in fact impossible without a mention of the de-industrialisation that continues to plague it. Just another point of irony in the great ‘Nigerian Paradox’ of acute economic backwardness in a situation of abundant natural and human resources!

The collapse of world oil markets in the early 1980s skewered Nigeria’s foreign exchange reserves and practically stalled economic growth. The cumulative effect of years of incoherent policies further upset the country’s fragile international and domestic fiscal condition, causing massive inflation, unemployment and poverty. Nigeria’s standing as a middle-income country was thoroughly humiliated, and by the 1990s, it was confirmed as one of the poorest in the world. An even more demeaning fall in average living standards accompanied the loss of national fortunes.

The economic downslide proved especially harsh on the manufacturing sector, partly at least due to the over-dependence on oil exports that thwarted economic diversification. With local sourcing of raw material confined to all but a few industries, capacity utilisation plunged dramatically in import-dependent operations. Nigerian manufacturing is predominantly about isolated assembly-line functions with very limited or no backward connections to the economy. These and other factors combined to bring the total GDP contribution from manufacturing down from a little over 9% in 1981 to 6% by the end of the last century.

The renewal of democratic governance in 1999 was followed by an enthusiastic redirection of development policies. Abuja quickly announced multiple programmes to achieve a stable and globally aggressive economy that is not critically dependent on the oil and gas sector. The crux of the government’s new ambitions were outlined with the adoption of the 2020 goals, a radical vision document that foresees Nigeria as one of the 20 top world economies by that year. While there are no comprehensive progress reports yet, some international aid and monitoring agencies are ambiguous about the eventual fate of this grand scheme. Others, like the IMF, are confident that Nigeria will not only achieve its goals, but will do so despite the current global financial crisis. In July, a visiting IMF team reaffirmed optimism about rapid growth and economic diversification, insisting however on the importance of a macroeconomic policy conducive to private sector growth.

What Nigeria effectively needs are policies fostering rapid business development across sectors: In other words, an enterprise revolution that accelerates sustainable growth while simultaneously helping alleviate poverty and improve living standards. The complex socio-economic realities in this corner of West Africa often defy the best laid development plans, and it is no surprise that initiatives like the Nigerian Industrial Development Bank (established 1964) or the structural Adjustment …

Infiltrations

Posted on Posted in government, law

The one thing Targeted Individuals have to understand is the concept of Infiltration. This means that agents, hired operatives, civillian informants, etc will try to infiltrate your organizations or your life.

I recently posted an article about Infiltration of online groups. This has been happening for some time now. Many people think if they are posting online that they will not be investigated, but there are infiltrators who try to engage posters in conversations, where they get them to say things against the government, or use talk of violence, something that might not happen without the provocateur. These individuals are on most of the popular forums, and often you won’t know who they are. You might get a sense of who they are based on their postings, but that is not always the case.

Here on some things to be aware of regarding Infiltrations.

Police hire private spies to snoop online

THE Internet communications and websites of anti-war campaigners, environmentalists, animal rights activists and other protest groups are being secretly monitored by state and federal agencies.

A Melbourne private intelligence firm specialising in “open-source intelligence” has been engaged by Victoria Police, the Australian Federal Police and the federal Attorney-General’s Department to monitor and report on the protest movements’ use of the internet.

The monitoring, which has been secretly conducted for at least five years, includes exploring websites, online chat rooms, social networking sites, email lists and bulletin boards to gather information on planned demonstrations and other activities. Many of those monitored have not broken any laws, but it is believed information about their participation in online activities is conveyed to government agencies that also deal with terrorism.[/quote]

These types of infiltrations are happening all over the Internet. Sometimes the poster will just be observing gathering information and monitoring. In other cases they will perform a similar fuction to their offline components, and they will engage posters in extreme conversations about violence, anti-government sentiments, etc.

When J.Edgar Hoover ran the FBI, the infiltration of the KKK was about 20% infiltration. The agents that had infiltrated the FBI were often responsible for encouraging acts of violence on others, or enacting those acts of violence themselves.

2) psychological warfare from the outside, using “dirty tricks” to undermine progressive movements; 3) harassment through the legal system, making targets appear to be criminal; and
4) extralegal force and violence including break-ins, vandalism, assaults, and beatings to frighten dissidents and disrupt their movements. [/quote]…

The Perfect Lawyer to Handle Your Mesothelioma Case

Posted on Posted in law

When diagnosed with mesothelioma, you are 80 percent likely to have been previously exposed to asbestos, which means that you are able to seek compensation through a lawsuit. Mesothelioma is a deadly disease that negatively affects the protective covering of many vital organs.

Manufacturing companies such as the ones in the cement industry, shipyards, and many others all exposed their workers to asbestos. Mesothelioma attorneys are always on hand to represent the inflicted. However, there are a couple of good traits to look for in a mesothelioma attorney. Make sure they have all the proper licenses and registrations to practice law in your state. You should feel comfortable with the attorney’s wealth of experience. It is important to have your case handled by someone who has taken tough cases and won. Make sure that when asking about his record the attorney has evidence to back up his claims, because lawyers are no strangers to marketing.

The internet is a good place to look for mesothelioma attorneys, who are always advertising to possible clients. Because they benefit from the affliction of this disease, it is a business decision to take your case to the lawyer. You also need to understand the chances of winning the case. A good mesothelioma attorney will also be paid once the cases over. It’s usually above 40 percent. Make sure you dial in the payment terms for your case with your attorney. There are also lawyers who advertise themselves on a nationwide scale to try to hit as many clients as possible. This will be deceiving when you start looking for an attorney, because using these large forms can be a hassle; in other words, you need to find someone who practices within your state.

This will make a low stress environment when you’re planning for corporate meetings and appearances. Voters should also be able to relay information for you, in layman’s terms. It is important to do research on the background of the attorney you choose to help determine their confidence level. Good attorneys offer advice to you for a free or not. Just because they’re an attorney does not make them are infallible, and your opinion should still weigh in on certain issues pertaining to the case. When you have picked a satisfactory lawyer you are free to focus your efforts on the medical and emotional ordeals that come with mesothelioma.…

Setting up a Company in Turkey

Posted on Posted in government, law

With the passage of the Foreign Direct Investment Law in 2003, the process of establishing a company in Turkey has become a lot easier. Foreign nationals may now become shareholders of Turkish companies with no capital investment requirement and are allowed to establish any type of entity available under Turkish law. Depending on the type and size of your company, there are many incentives available to encourage inward investments. For instance, the Turkish Board of Ministers has recently passed a decision that would allow for customs tax and VAT immunity, as well as a substantial reduction in the corporate tax for newly established companies that creates jobs in certain areas of Turkey. We have provided general information and listed the required documents for formation of a company, branch or liaison office in Turkey below.

Company

There are two types of companies that could be established: a Limited Liability Company (LLC) and a Joint-Stock Company. Both types of entities have a legal identity. The minimum paid in capital for a LLC is 5,000 TL and requires at least 2 founders (maximum 50). For a Joint-Stock Company, the paid in capital is 50,000 TL and requires at least 5 founders. It should be noted that the paid in capital for both types of companies are not immediately due at incorporation; 1/4 of the capital is required within 3 months after establishment and the remainder within 3 years. To register for a LLC, we would have to lodge a petition to the provincial trade registration office, and for a Joint-Stock Company, the registration process would have to be done with the Ministry of Industry and Trade. The current corporate tax in Turkey is a flat rate of 20%.

Some Required Establishment Documents

1) Articles of Association
2) Letter petitioning for establishment and notice signed by company’s representative
3) Notarized signatures of company’s representative with the company’s trade name
4) Letter of Commitment
5) Bank receipt showing a deposit of 0.04% of the company’s capital
6) Notarized copies of the passport, ID and residence certificates (for Turkish citizens) of the founders of the company
7) Certificate of Activity if there is a foreign shareholder legal entity, approved by the Turkish Consulate (with apostilled and notarized translation)

Branch Office

A branch office does not have a separate legal identity as it is seen as an extension of a foreign company. Any income originating from the branch is taxed by the Turkish government as a non-resident company. To establish a branch, your company would have to gain permission from the Ministry of Trade and Commerce and register with the regional Trade Registry Office.

Ministry of Trade and Commerce Required Documents

1) Letter issued by the company or its representative. The letter must include the following:

  • Name of Establishing Company
  • Date of Incorporation
  • Nationality
  • Amount of stated capital
  • Name, Last Name, Address and nationality of the company’s representative in Turkey (appointed for the branch)
  • Legal Undertaking indicating that the representative shall abide by Turkish laws and regulations

Eat Healthy Food And You Can Live Healthy

Posted on Posted in society

A central concern of the society in which we live is health. People are getting more and more conscious about living a healthy life. Eating healthy food is of course a great way to improve your health and stay healthy. A common misconception among people is that healthy food refers to bland and boring food that is widely available as a natural food co-op. However, healthy food is actually what you eat every day, only it is prepared in a slightly different way.

Healthy food as well as healthy eating habits is pleasant for the palate. Closer the food is to its natural state; the healthier it is for you. You can improve your eating habits by cutting down on packaged food. This kind of food, although convenient, is filled with preservatives and artificial ingredients. Healthy food can be convenient too, once you get into the habit of preparing them.

It is very easy and inexpensive to prepare and eat healthy food. Here is an example: grill some lean hamburger patties until they are well cooked. Once this is done, place the patties on whole grain all natural hamburger buns. The burgers can be served with a tossed salad as well as a side of steamed green beans. Follow it up by serving fresh fruit for dessert. This entire meal can be prepared within half an hour and includes a variety of healthy food.

Grilling lean meat, fish, or chicken does not take a long time. While the meat cooks, you can easily toss up a salad of greens and vegetables. You can also round out the meal by using frozen or fresh vegetables. You can bring in variety into your meals by using healthy foods that you have never tasted before. Be sure to check the produce section of the local grocer, which will be stocked with a whole range of exotic fruits and vegetables. Some produce sections also offer recipes on how to cook the vegetables with which you are not familiar. This is a great way to introduce your children to healthy foods. You can also experiment with fresh herbs that can add new flavors to your meal.

Preparing healthy food on a regular basis will help you to make fast health nutrition meals. If you get the time, try using healthy food in exotic recipes. Healthy food can be prepared before hand and frozen for later use. When you prepare your own frozen food, you can be absolutely sure that there are no artificial additives or preservatives.

Encourage your children to get involved in the preparation of healthy foods. This will create a time that you can share with them. Eating healthy food does not cost you much of your time or money and most certainly, it is a better option for you.…
