‘Government working on strong legal frameworks for data handling’

India is working on strong frameworks on both personal data and non-personal data to ensure that there is a comprehensive and cutting-edge legal framework for dealing with data and data handling, said Rajendra Kumar, Additional Secretary, Union Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, at a round table session on ‘Role of government in the new digital age’ at CII Connect 2020. A Personal Data Protection Bill was brought in Parliament, which is now under active consideration by the Joint Parliamentary Committee. “We hope to bring the Bill into a reality soon in the form of an Act,” he said. With such a Data Protection, India will join a select few countries to have a strong legal framework for data protection and privacy, he added.
