Non-Personal Data Framework Premature: Startups, Tech Groups to Govt Committee

The idea of a non-personal data governance framework and a regulator for the same may be “premature and not entirely necessary” in India as of now as the country is yet to have a personal data protection regime in place, startups and tech policy bodies have said in their submissions to the nine-member non-personal data governance committee.
“The proposed mandatory data access policies will likely deter investment and innovation in the Indian market, raising the costs of acquiring such data in the first place while also disincentivising data collection activities, resulting in increased costs for end-users and reduced incentives for developing new technology,” software alliance group BSA, which has Amazon Web Services, Cisco, and Microsoft among its members, said in its submission.
