The Digital Personal Data Protection Bill of 2022 has officially become the Digital Personal Data Protection Act of 2023. This Act is now in effect and governs the processing of digital personal data in India, regardless of whether the data was originally collected in digital or non-digital format and subsequently digitized.
This legislation is designed to bolster data protection and accountability for entities & businesses that handle citizens’ data. It aligns with global data protection standards such as GDPR.
• The Bill will apply to the processing of digital personal data within India where such data is collected online, or collected offline and is digitized. It will also apply to such processing outside India if it is for offering goods or services in India.
• Personal data may be processed only for a lawful purpose upon consent of an individual. Consent may not be required for specified legitimate uses such as the voluntary sharing of data by the individual or processing by the State for permits, licenses, benefits, and services.
• Data fiduciaries will be obligated to maintain the accuracy of data, keep data secure, and delete data once its purpose has been met.
• The Bill grants certain rights to individuals including the right to obtain information, seek correction and erasure, and grievance redressal.
• The central government may exempt government agencies from the application of provisions of the Bill in the interest of specified grounds such as security of the state, public order, and prevention of offenses.
• The central government will establish the Data Protection Board of India to adjudicate non-compliance with the provisions of the Bill.
The DPDP Act, 2023 is poised to exert a substantial influence across a spectrum of organizational domains. This encompassing act extends to critical areas such as legal, IT, human resources, sales and marketing, procurement, finance, and information security. Given the substantial quantity and nature of personal data being collected, stored, processed, retained, and disposed off within India, it becomes imperative for organizations within these sectors, as well as those closely related, to formulate robust data privacy implementation strategies in response to the DPDP Act, 2023.
