12 Recommendations Made by Parl Panel in Report on Personal Data Protection

Business Standard, December 17, 2021

By Neha Alawadhi

The parliamentary joint committee on the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill, 2019, headed by P P Chaudhary, MP, on Thursday presented its report, recommending changes to draft legislation, including altering its name to “Data Protection Bill”. The key proposed changes to the Bill include those on data localisation, having a single data protection authority (DPA) for personal and non-personal data, and provisions for localisation and cross-border flows of data.

Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy, country manager — India, BSA | The Software Alliance, said: “Removing provisions on non-personal data (NPD), avoiding mandatory data localisation, and promoting cross-border data transfers in the final Bill will support the Bill’s objectives, which is to safeguard personal data and enhance privacy protections.
