Some companies use non-private data of Indian citizens for their business. During this time, these companies take care of their privacy and remove their names and use their data by any other name. In view of this, a special committee by the government in its report has stated the need for data regulator for centralized rules for data business.
The report states that by establishing a data regulator, companies should be asked to make public the methods of collecting non-private data. These include companies such as Facebook, Google, Amazon, Uber Technology and Alphabet. In a 72-page report, eight people on the panel said that all stakeholders must ensure that they follow the rules and provide data only for proper use.
It is known that countries around the world strengthen data security within their borders. At the same time, India is also moving forward to draft and strengthen the policies that control its growing digital economy. There is already a bill to control personal data. The panel has also recommended linking of non-personal data regulators through legislation in this report.
Non-personal data refers to information that does not include any details. Such as name, age, or address that can be used to identify a person. However, many companies will not be able to do so arbitrarily after this.
