The Supreme Court on Thursday sought responses from the Centre, the RBI and the National Payments Corporation of India on a PIL which alleged breach of financial data security of Indians using ‘Unified Payments Interface’ (UPI) services offered by big players like Amazon Pay, GooglePay and challenged the permission to WhatsApp to start UPI services. A bench of Chief Justice S A Bobde and Justices A S Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian entertained the PIL by CPI’s Rajya Sabha member Binoy Viswam alleging that the firms breached the RBI regulation and the existing law which mandated those offering such services to store financial data on servers located in Indian and not transfer them abroad. Viswam’s petition, filed through advocate Sriram Parakkat, said the petitioner’s aim was to “protect the fundamental right to privacy of millions of Indian who are using UPI’’, which is regulated by RBI and NPCI.
