Increasingly, India is being seen as a pioneer in digital technologies. This rapid pace of transformation has raised larger questions around inclusion, data protection and privacy (Reuters)

When the government set up the committee on Data Protection in India, led by Justice B.N. Srikrishna, it said that the objective “is to ensure growth of the digital economy while keeping personal data of citizens secure and protected”. The Committee has recently released its provisional views on the formulation of a data protection framework and invited public comments. The Committee does a commendable job on a number of counts. It has covered a wide range of issues pertaining to data protection and privacy. While it has looked at the issues from the prism of what is relevant in India, it has also brought in perspectives from other countries. But there are some important ways in which the Committee can strengthen its final report.
