BSA | The Software Alliance today submitted comments on the Report by the Committee of Experts on the Non-Personal Data Governance Framework. BSA said that it appreciates the opportunity to share its recommendations and help enact a framework that can unlock the immense potential for the social, public, and economic value of data.
“BSA supports efforts to enhance the collective benefits of data by advancing responsible policies that facilitate voluntary data sharing, collaboration, innovation, and growth while protecting privacy and security. However, the scope of the current Framework is overly broad and could impede efforts to achieve India’s objectives of attracting investment, encouraging start-ups to innovate, and tackling today’s most pressing challenges”, said Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy, Country Manager — India, BSA | The Software Alliance. “We urge the Committee to encourage voluntary data sharing arrangements and to promote cross-border data flows to ensure the continued growth of India’s vibrant digital economy. The Framework must recognize that mandatory obligations are counterproductive throughout the data ecosystem and present additional complications if applied to data processors.”
