President Barack Obama announced NSA reform plans

Mar 28, 2014 17:50 IST

President Barack Obama on 27 March 2014 announced National Security Agency (NSA) reform plan. The plans were aimed to end bulk collection of telephone records.

imageUnder the proposed legislation, the phone companies were allowed to store records of phone calls and allow government agents to search the database with a court order.

 The proposed legislation would curb the power of NSA and would defuse a controversy over the government’s sweeping surveillance activities on millions of Americans.

The collection of data needs congressional approval. Although, the plan addresses the public privacy concern but it still allows the government to conduct surveillance to thwart terrorist attacks.
