Digital Personal Data Protection Bill is a new law that regulates the processing of personal data in India. The bill was passed by the Indian Parliament in August 2023.
Any organization that collects, processes, or stores personal data of individuals in India. It is the first comprehensive data protection law in India.
Any information that can be used to identify an individual, such as their name, address, phone number, email address, or biometric data.
Only for lawful purposes, such as providing goods or services, conducting research, or marketing.
Organizations that collect or process personal data must obtain consent from individuals before collecting or processing their personal data.
Individuals have the right to access their personal data, correct it if it is inaccurate, and have it erased in certain cases.
The bill will help to protect the privacy of individuals in India. It will also help to create a more level playing field for businesses and give consumers more control over their personal data.
Fines of up to ₹250 crore or 4% of global turnover, whichever is higher are all for those who fail to comply with the law.
The Data Protection Board of India, a new regulatory body, will be responsible for implementing the bill.
