Abstract: Inalienable rights are inherent in Human called as natural rights as for example “Right to privacy.” Positive law made by legislature regulate it according to States’ reasonable necessity. These limitations are mentioned in the Constitution itself. In India, right to privacy has been recently recognised by the Supreme Court. In India there was a bill related to Right to privacy. The judgments of the Court are mainly corrective in nature and enforceable by the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 (Civil Contempt and Criminal Contempt.) or with the help of Article 142 and 144 of Indian constitution. In absence of specific legislation, we can read the right to privacy in statutes like IPC, CRPC, Easement, etc. If we file a petition under the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971; it will generate procedural difficulties, that is permission needs to be taken from Advocate General. Thus, corrective approach of the Court is only remedy in absence of express statutory provisions.
