The Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 (PDP Bill, 2019), which was tabled in the Lok Sabha on 11 December, 2019, now stands referred to a Joint Parliamentary Committee (JPC) of both houses of the Parliament, chaired by Smt. Meenakshi Lekhi, Member of Parliament. The JPC will be submitting its report on the PDP Bill, 2019 in the last week of the Budget Session of the Parliament in 2020, after due consultation with stakeholders. In this backdrop, NASSCOM-DSCI has been conducting a series of member consultation meetings to solicit inputs and identify key impact areas of bill for the industry. We would be using these inputs to enrich our position paper that would be taken to the JPC and the Government.
Do note that NASSCOM-DSCI has already provided detailed submissions in respect of some of the issues discussed in the context of the draft Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018. While some of our recommendations have been accepted, and reflected in the PDP Bill, 2019, there are several other issues which continue to be unresolved. Therefore, and in order to ensure effective engagement with the JPC and the Government, we would urge you all to provide us with practical examples of how certain provisions in the Bill, could lead to implications in terms of costs and business model changes. This would enable us to illustrate the industry’s view more effectively.
