The tender had alarmed activists who said it could lead to a violation of privacy of people who have used IRCTC’s services since it sought to analyse data points like their names, contact numbers, addresses and even “login/password” credentials.

Indian Railways’ catering and ticketing arm Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC) has withdrawn a controversial tender — which proposed hiring a consultant to monetise a bulk of its passengers’ data — since the government has withdrawn the data protection Bill.

Very surprising that they were willing to sell the login and password credentials as well!
