The data protection bill or the Bill has been proposed by the Department of Electronics and Information Technology and it is mandatory for Indian companies to implement. This is after the Department of Telecommunication approved the draft bill.
The draft bill has been proposed for the protection and regulation of personal data generated, collected, maintained, processed, and disclosed by internet companies. This is to ensure the security of the privacy of data and to restrict the processing of the personal data of the users. Also, it protects the right to privacy, order respect for personal autonomy, data portability, transparency in processing operations, and equal protection to all individuals within India.
