There has been a re-emergence of interest in privacy and data protection issues in India owing to the rise of big data, the debates surrounding Aadhaar, and the government’s push towards a cashless/less-cash economy. There is an urgent need to develop a privacy framework that makes India compliant with globally accepted privacy and data-protection standards.
Towards this end, NIFPF is organising this roundtable. The agenda consists of three parts:
Session 1: The need for a privacy law
Session 2: Framework for a privacy law
Session 3: Challenges and way forward
Representatives of all stakeholder groups will be attending.
