The Constitution of India guarantees the fundamental right to freedom of thought, expression of ideas and creativity in a free manner. Article 19(1)(a) gives the fundamental right to freedom of speech and expression, which includes the right to publication of content. However, there are times when this right is not absolute and is subject to restrictions. The paper aims to propagate that when the State strives to control and regulate such content, it should show to be thoughtful in this approach. The State draws the authority from the Constitution of India, the Information Technology Act, The Data Protection Rules and regulations made there under. It also seeks to understand censorship on the grounds of public policy with respect to online content and the working of the relevant provisions across major jurisdictions of the world.
