Privacy Protection Bill, 2013 (With Amendments based on Public Feedback)

Posted by Elonnai Hickok at Jun 30, 2013 02:50 PM |
In 2013 CIS drafted the Privacy Protection Bill as a citizens' version of a privacy legislation for India. Since April 2013, CIS has been holding Privacy Roundtables in collaboration with FICCI and DSCI, with the objective of gaining public feedback to the Privacy Protection Bill and other possible frameworks for privacy in India.

This research was undertaken as part of the 'SAFEGUARDS' project that CIS is undertaking with Privacy International and IDRC


As a part of this process, CIS has been amending the Privacy Protection Bill based on public feedback. Below is the text of the Bill as amended according to feedback gained from the New Delhi, Bangalore, and Chennai Roundtables.
