Personal Data Protection Bill

India's parliament introduced the Personal Data Protection Bill (PDPB) on December 11, 2019. PDPB sets rules for how personal data should be processed and stored and lists people's rights concerning their personal information. It also proposes to create an independent new Indian regulatory authority, the Data Protection Authority (DPA), to carry out this law. The bill also sets out grounds for exemption.

Security requirements

Almost all businesses across India’s economy will have to meet the bill’s conditions. This will include not just e-commerce, social media, and IT companies, but also brick-and-mortar shops, real estate companies, hospitals, and pharmaceutical companies. The only exceptions will be “small entities” (businesses like small retailers that collect information manually and meet other conditions to be specified by the DPA).

The Indian Personal Data Protection Bill implies the same security measures as GDPR. Processors of personal data are required to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the security of personal data.
