In a bid to contain the increasing crime rates, the government is planning to build the world’s largest facial recognition system – a centralized database – accessible to police across all states of the country. The technology has been already adopted in Andhra Pradesh and Punjab in 2018. However, the involvement of foreign companies in the project has sparked fear in the minds of netizens over the privacy of their details.
