India’s Personal Data Protection Bill

PDPB is inspired by GDPR and serves the same purpose. It was introduced in India’s parliament on December 11, 2019, the Personal Data Protection Bill (PDPB) sets rules for how personal data should be processed and stored, and lists people’s rights with respect to 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.

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).

Implies security requirements

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.
