In this episode of the Perspective Prog. Based on ‘Digital Personal Data Protection Bill’. Three months after the withdrawal of the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill from Lok Sabha, the government has come up with a revamped legislation and sought views on it from the public. The draft is up for public consultation until 17th December, and the final version is expected to be tabled in the Budget session of Parliament next year. The revised bill addresses several sticking points in the previous one which had been opposed by global tech companies and caused an industry pushback. The purpose of the legislation, as mentioned in the draft, is to provide for the processing of digital personal data in a manner that recognizes both the right of individuals to protect their personal data and the need to process personal data for lawful purposes. On the show today we will analyse some of the key provisions of the draft Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, the contentious aspects it has watered down and how it addresses concerns of the consumers.
