And so we've heard a lot about the Edward Snowden leaks and about the NSA's controversial mass surveillance projects. But what's happening in India?

It turns out that the world's largest democracy has some of the most controversial surveillance schemes in the world! Some of India's laws, schemes, projects and technologies are unbeatable when it comes to mass surveillance, censorship and control. While India may be a developing country with issues ranging from poverty to corruption, it nonetheless appears to be at the forefront of surveillance on an international level.

Join us at the Centre for Internet and Society (CIS) on 3rd December 2013 to hear about India's surveillance laws, schemes and technologies and to engage in a discussion on the potential implications. All that is required is an open mind, critical thought and a will to challenge that which has not been challenged!

We look forward to seeing you all and to hearing your thoughts, ideas and opinions!
