Joint committee calls for one body to regulate personal, non-personal data

The Joint Committee of Parliament (JCP) in its report on the Personal Data Protection Bill (2019) has sought the establishment of a single regulatory authority to oversee both personal and non-personal data and recommended that the center, in consultation with sectoral regulators, prepare an extensive policy on data localization.

Our Managing Partner, RAJAT PRAKASH explained to The Economic Times that "Considering that the data protection law will be one of the key legislations to drive the economy of the future, the government needs to tread carefully on the issues( such as) regulation of non-personal data under the same legislation." He also added any over-regulation or any actions contrary to global norms could impact the future of the digital economy.
