Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy, country manager, India, for BSA | The Software Alliance says, “It’s a step in the right direction because the time of privacy legislation has come. It’s been a pretty thorough effort trying to come with a comprehensive data protection legislation on the government’s part.” There were many concerns in the first bill with respect to the definitions of data and the mandate of data localisation. BSA is hoping that the final version will have rules that are horizontally applicable.
