India’s Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill has been in the news for multiple reasons. In early July 2021, there were concerns about the passage of PDP Bill without consultation with other members of the Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC).
On 8 July, members of the JPC were elevated to ministerial positions, leaving the future of data protection regulation in India uncertain.

The 2019 version is the latest draft of the PDP Bill. The text of the Bill can be viewed at http://164.100.47.4/BillsTexts/LSBillTexts/Asintroduced/373_2019_LS_Eng.pdf

Peer review and feedback for the PDP Bill: The PDP Bill will impact the future of India’s citizens and businesses. The provisions in the 2019 draft of the PDP Bill therefore need to be examined closely to understand how the Bill will translate on the ground. The Data Protection Authority (DPA) will be constituted to see through the implementation of the PDP, once the Bill is passed in the Parliament.

This project is a call to the technology ecosystem to provide feedback and review for the PDP Bill, and to open the channels of feedback with JPC, MEITY and related organizations to ensure that India has a robust data protection bill and a responsive DPA. The Privacy Mode team has published a review of the PDP Bill from compliance costs and overheads for small and medium-sized organizations at https://hasgeek.com/PrivacyMode/pdp-bill/sub/personal-data-protection-pdp-bill-review-and-recom-Buzd6Mb5JyGCvVe3AGU3NA

If you have experience with implementing GDPR, CCPA or any other privacy regulation, and/or have reviewed the PDP Bill, share your experience by adding a submission at https://hasgeek.com/PrivacyMode/pdp-bill/sub
Submissions are open for discussing pragmatic issues and operational challenges with implementing the PDP Bill.
