Latest bill for India’s new data protection law published




India has proposed a new data privacy law by publishing the bill for the legislation on 18 November 2022, according to The Straits Times.


The new Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, now available for public consultation until 17 December, comes after several iterations over five years. The Hindu said that this was the fourth iteration of the proposed law after a first draft was introduced in 2018.


This followed a 2017 ruling by the Supreme Court of India that the right to privacy is a constitutionally protected fundamental freedom.
