It has been over a year since the ministry of electronics and information technology introduced the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019 in the Lok Sabha of Parliament, however, there is still much confusion as to the actual implementation of the final version of the legislation. The Indian data protection regulations remain a legal labyrinth, and the law appears to be trapped in legislative procedure and formalities, despite the fact that it is supposed to be in the last stages of parliamentary scrutiny – being evaluated by a Joint Parliamentary Committee. This paper focuses on the key provisions and highlights the supposed flaws in the act by comparing the Indian version of the bill to that of similar legislation in Singapore. Furthermore, it explains the rights of data holders through the landmark judgement of the courts.
Data protection, right to privacy, data protection authority.
