ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Data protection has become a serious concern worldwide, including in India. The personal data in the hands of the data processers are always at risk of being misused, breached and leaked. International Standards, Guidelines and Privacy Codes recognise right to privacy and data protection. Numerous countries and jurisdictions of the world have already enacted laws, rules, directives and regulations to protect personal data rights. However, in India till date, there is no specific law on the protection of the personal data of individuals.
Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 has been drafted by Government of India to provide extensive data protection rights to individuals. The present Bill was preceded by the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018. To make the provisions of the Bills stronger, two specific Reports on the aspect of the data protection namely the Report on A Free and Fair Digital Economy under Justice B. N. Srikrishna and recent Report of the Joint Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 under Sh. P.P. Chaudhary were submitted in July 2018 and December 2021 respectively.
Awaiting the passing of the Bill on Data Protection, the framework needs to have effective provisions in line with the international Models. One such change which can be introduced in India is addition of Habeus Data Writ as existing in
countries like Brazil, Argentina, Philippines, Columbia, etc. The new Writ can make data protection regime in India a reality.
The existing patchwork of laws for the protection of personal data under the Constitution of India, Information Technology Act, 2000, Allied Rules and various miscellaneous laws awaits drastic and urgent changes. The present Conference seeks to bring together all stakeholders of the data protection regime in the country and incorporate their suggestions for a stronger framework for personal data protection.
- To highlight the gaps in the provisions under the Information Technology Act, 2000 and its Allied Rules on data protection
- To compare the framework for the protection of data protection in India , other countries and European Union
- To suggest possible suggestions, modifications, amendments, alternatives for data-protection regime in India.
- To delineate the scope of personal liberty as expounded by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India
- To synthesize the human liberty in the provisions of proposed Data Protection Bill in the context of the degree of social developments in India and world.
