A new draft of the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 #PDPBill was released this week, and introduced in the Lok Sabha yesterday. It builds on the earlier draft prepared by the #SrikrishnaCommittee, but with a few significant changes ⬇️
The most concerning provision in the new #PDPBill is Section 35 on exceptions for the state for national security, law enforcement, sovereignty etc. It drops the legal test of ‘necessity and proportionality’ and legality, taking a huge step back on #SurveillanceReform.
#PDPBill asks some #SocialMedia platforms to give users option to voluntarily verify their identities, posing questions about #FreeSpeech and if there will be greater #Surveillance of accounts who don’t identify themselves. This provision is out of scope for a #DataProtectionLaw.
