The Meghalaya Government has replied to our legal notice and has explained its position wrt to the use of FRT for verification of pensioners’ identities! We have analysed the response here ⬇️ 1/6…
The Govt. of Meghalaya says that the deployment of Facial Recognition Technology is optional and not mandatory. What it forgets is that the principles of information security must be complied by any authority collecting data, even when such collection is on a voluntary basis. 2/6
GoM says that the use of FRT doesn’t require any anchoring legislation, and doesn’t violate the right to privacy. What it forgets is that in the absence of a data protection law, the high risk of data misuse outweighs the aim of offering additional convenience to pensioners. 3/6

<27/11/2020 WORLD WITHOUT KONG SPELITY> Kong Spelity Lyngdoh Langrin of Domisiat, #Khasi Hills, #Meghalaya is no more. She left us yesterday night at 11.30pm. Kong Spelity - Matriarch of Domiasiat, refused to allow #Uranium to be mined on her land.
Offered 45 Crore rupees for a 30 years lease of her land, she said, "Money will not buy my Freedom."

Welcome back to another episode of the #WildAboutFacts series. Today, we are taking over your feed with pictures and #trivia of one of the most alluring creatures from the #wild, the #RedPanda.

Join us, share your #photographs of the #Firefox of the #Himalayas.

📷Sourav Mondal

Its distinctive fur has earned this species monikers such as #Firefox, Firecat, or Fire-coloured Cat. Arguably, the #RedPanda is the only true #Panda, as the #GiantPanda, which is believed to be closely related, belongs to the #bear family.

📷Senthil Murugan

Around half of the #RedPanda’s natural habitat lies in the Eastern #Himalayas#Nepal, #Sikkim, northern #WestBengal, #Bhutan, and #ArunachalPradesh.

Its remaining home is in northern #Myanmar and a few provinces of central #China.
