India cautiously welcomes new data law
Our Partner, Jitendra Soni shares his views with the Global Data Review on what lies ahead for the Government as it inches closer towards the implementation of the Digital Personal Data Protection Act, 2023.
According to Jeet, realistically, full implementation of India’s flagship data law is likely to pose challenges and it will certainly be a rollercoaster ride with a mixed bag of hits and misses.
According to him, the government may have to work significantly with MSMEs to reduce compliance burden and work around exemptions to ease out transition pain as it would help in avoiding the undoing of numerous measures adopted over the years to nurture the MSME ecosystem.
Further, he also noted that while urban India will in all likelihood appreciate the benefits of the new data law, its impact on rural India could in contrast be multifaceted given the complete lack of awareness about their data privacy rights.
