No Privacy: OYO to Provide Govt With Guest’s Live Check-in Data

This data will reportedly help states monitor movements of visitors and will also reduce the possibility of manipulating the hotel register.

When the government makes breach of privacy and snooping acceptable, private companies will, of course, follow suit.

According to a Business Standard report, hospitality start-up company, OYO Hotels & Homes is putting in place a system that will facilitate direct data sharing of its customers with various state governments and law enforcement authorities to give them better information of guests staying at its hotels or visiting the state.

This data will reportedly help states monitor movements of visitors and will also reduce the possibility of manipulating the hotel register.

According to Aditya Ghosh, the chief executive officer of India and South Asia at OYO, the company “would be happy to make the platform open” for all state governments and wishes to be a pioneer in India on this digitisation drive.

“At this point, we have seen acceptance from the governments of Haryana, Rajasthan and Telangana of our proposed digitisation of guest entry and departure records. The digital arrival and departure register aim to provide a real-time update to the respective governments on who’s checking in and checking out, making this a more efficient and transparent process as compared to the manual version,” he said at an event organised by the CII here.

While Business Standard did not report on the privacy concerns such a move will lead to a prima facie violation of one’s right to privacy.
