The Government of India has proposed and introduced the draft of the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill to the Joint Parliamentary Committee in the Lok Sabha recently. This bill is going to be the Government of India’s another milestone in cyber security space after “Digital India” drive a couple of years back. Previously, this bill was introduced in 2018 by SriKrishna Committee, defining the importance of personal data and its sensitivity. These data include financial data, biometric data, intersex/ transgender status and official government identifiers (like PAN card).
