New Delhi: The present-day information-technology era should not just say that today it is in the most advanced stage. But that it is a much bigger reason to say that today information technology is controlling human life. Newer technologies previously facilitated the transmission of information and accelerated its speed.

This process of control carried out in two broad ways - one is by arbitrarily influencing its expression by establishing a monopoly on information, and the other is a matter of privacy which is in crisis today.
