JPC Report: Industry Concerned Over Inclusion of Non-Personal Data, Expanded Localisation Mandates
Financial Express, December 17, 2021
Industry representatives have raised concerns on certain recommendations of the parliamentary committee on data protection bill, including those around inclusion of non-personal data and expanded data localisation mandates, and said these will harm people’s rights and impact businesses.
BSA-The Software Alliance also stated that several of the report’s recommendations remain concerning. “We are particularly concerned by the recommendation to expand the Bill to regulate non-personal data (NPD). The goal of a personal data protection bill, protecting individuals’ privacy, is often at odds with the objective of the proposed NPD Governance Framework, which is to generate more value from data,” it said.
