Optimal Governance of NPD 2.0
India is one of the fastest-growing digital economies in the world, but it lags far behind in its data-protection regime. The Joint Parliamentary Committee's (JPC) Report on the Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 (PDPB) recommended widening the scope of the bill to include aspects of non-personal data (NPD), including anonymized personal data. This move is believed to be fraught with many lacunas and may lead to unintended challenges and adverse consequences for stakeholders. Further, recently, many policies including NPD aspects have been introduced which have led to multiple policy drafts in circulation, risk functional overlaps and fuel regulatory uncertainty.
This roundtable aims to engage experts to discuss the gaps, unintended challenges, regulatory uncertainty, and the way forward.
