The new legislation passed in the Parliament which promises ‘to guard the personal data of citizens in the digital age’ has been making the headlines since the past few days. With the assurance of ensuring safety of personal data of each and every Indian citizen, The Digital Personal Data Protection Bill, 2023 is a landmark parliamentary legislation which provides optimum security for Indians in cyberspace. It is an act to provide for the processing of digital personal data in a manner that recognises both the right of individuals to protect their personal data and the need to process such personal data for lawful purposes and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto. The Bill provides detailed provisions on its applicability, viability, exemptions, processing of data, functions of the Data Protection Board, provisions for children and several other implications.
