Tech bodies to take Data Bill worries to house committee
Industry bodies that represent companies such as Infosys, TCS, Google, Facebook, Paytm and Amazon among others, want ‘clean’ bill so there is no need for another law when technology changes. The issues pertain to inclusion of non-personal data in the Bill and voluntary verification of users by social media companies, amid others.
New Delhi: Top industry bodies representing Indian as well as foreign companies are expected to highlight key issues pertaining to the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill before a Joint Parliamentary Committee that is studying the legislation, which was tabled in Parliament late last year.
