Including regulations for non-personal data (NPD) in the proposed Data Protection Bill 2021 would be ‘premature’ without defining clearly what such data is, experts said in a report published Tuesday. Mr. Venkatesh Krishnamoorthy, Country Manager – India, The Software Alliance (BSA), cautioned against imposing a requirement of mandatory sharing of NPD on data processors, given their contractual obligations with data fiduciaries, and their lack of ownership of such data.
