Data Protection Board will be transparent, assures minister

The Data Protection Board will be independent of the government, but will also be under the scrutiny of an appeals process. The judgments made by the board will be transparent and will be available in the public domain, said Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Union Minister of State for Entrepreneurship, Skill Development, Electronics, and IT in a video interview conducted by Hindu Business Line .

This Bill protects the citizen’s rights, does not increase the compliance burden on the innovation eco-system and carves out with exceptional clarity what are the emergent situations that government can access personal data and it will have an obligation to protect the data accessed, added the minister.

The DPDP Bill is going to create a behavioural change in the entities using citizens’ data and if data is breached, by government or a private company, there will be punitive financial penalties.

The Data Protection Board has been introduced by the government in DPDP Bill 2022.
