This is the third paper in a series on the recent judgment on the right to privacy by the nine judge constitution bench of the Supreme Court in a reference matter in Puttaswamy and others v. Union of India. The first two papers on the Sources and Structure of the constitutional right to privacy are available here, and here, respectively. While the previous papers dealt with the sources in the Constitution and the interpretive tools used by the bench to locate the right to privacy as a constitutional right, as well as the structure of the right with its various dimensions, this paper will look at the judgment for guidance on principles to determine what the scope of the right of privacy may be.
