It will now have to be passed by the Rajya Sabha to become a law and replace an Ordinance issued by the government in September this year.

The Trinamool Congress issued a notice Rule 267 in Rajya Sabha to take up a discussion Friday on home ministry’s surveillance order which allows 10 central agencies and Delhi police rights to monitor into anyone’s computer, according to news agency ANI.
