Indian Govt Sold Citizens' Vehicle Registration Details To Private Firm, Despite Objection

The union government, in 2014, sold off a copy of the entire database of India's vehicle registration details to a Delhi-based company that developed an entire business model out of selling solutions based on this data.

Multiple officials within the ministry raised several objections over the fact that the deal went ahead without any price discovery mechanisms in place, effectively selling off citizen data for cheap to the firm. The Reporters’ Collective investigated the truth behind the matter.
