1.     The Government of India established a Unique Identity Authority (UID) for the collection
       of the bio-metric data of people; in response to the scheme, a large number people
       voluntarily enrolled and submitted their bio-metric data.

2.   A reputed NGO called “Unite Lost Indians” filed a PIL in the High Court, inter alia, seeking
       directions that the Government of India should issue instructions to the UID to collect the
       blood samples of those who propose to enrol or those who have already enrolled and
       have their DNA profiles published on its website, with a search engine. According to the
       NGO, such information is vital and essential to unite thousands of lost children living in
       an orphanage or with adoptive families waiting to be united with their real parents, which
       is their fundamental right as protected in Article 21 of the Constitution.

3.     However, another NGO, lead by Ms. Priya Khan – a known name in Bollywood,
       immediately filed an intervention to oppose the PIL. The intervening NGO called “Right
       to Privacy” submitted that the relief sought by the petitioner NGO should not be granted,
       as the collection of blood samples and publication of DNA profiles by the UID on its

Delhi with the assistance of his intern, Ms.Tahira Kathpalia, Student of Law, Harris Manchester
College, University of Oxford.

     website as prayed in the PIL is contrary to the right to privacy guaranteed to the people
     under Art.21 of the Constitution. Unearthing the secrets of life which are buried deep is
     like inviting “a bull into a china shop”, said the intervening NGO. The Government of
     India, in its reply, did not take any sides on the contentious issues arising from the
     competing rights claimed by the NGOs under Art 21 of the Constitution, but agreed to
     abide by the directions of the Court, if any, to be issued.

4.   The High Court posted the PIL for final hearing on ‘X’ September 2012.

5.   The mooters are required to prepare brief for the Petitioner “Unite Lost Indians” and also
     the Intervener “Right to Privacy”.
