#DataProtection #DataProtectionBill2021 #PersonalDataProtectionBill2019 #DataSafety #DataPrivacy #DataPrivacyWeek #DataSafety Data Protection Bill 2021- Key takeaways The Personal Data Protection Bill (PDP Bill) was first introduced in 2019, has seen a lot of hype since its introduction. It is one of the most needed laws in India.

However, two years later on 16 Dec, 2021, the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) has given its recommendations to both houses of parliament. The Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 is now renamed as Personal Data Protection Bill, 2021.

So, Let us understand what are some of the key recommendations and changes suggested in the JPC Report –

– Recommendation to include non-personal data within the ambit of the PDP Bill. This was done to protect data privacy in a better way and to avoid difficulty so that a single regulator can oversee all kinds of data.

– Recommendation to designate all the social media platforms, which do not act as intermediaries as ‘Publishers of content’. This will further allow them to select the receiver of the content and give access to any content posted on any social media platform.

– Recommendation for data localisation. This was recommended with the aim that the Central Government should ensure the protection of data associated with the citizens of the country and it should not permit the data of its citizens to be governed by other countries. It also recommended that such data should be mandatorily restored in India from foreign entities for the purpose of national security.

– Recommendation to include a 72-hour reporting period for any kind of data breaches under Clause 25(3). It has also recommended a homegrown alternative to the SWIFT payment system to boost the domestic economy and ensure privacy.

– Recommendation to implement the act within a time period of approx 24 months.

The duration is provided for the data processors and data fiduciaries to get sufficient time to adapt and change their policies and for proper implementation of the recommendations provided in the bill.
