The high-level panel crafting the data protection framework for India is expected to submit its report to the government by the first week of August, and could prompt amendments to a slew of existing legislations in areas like Aadhaar, RTI and health.
The panel headed by Justice B N Srikrishna met here today -- in what is being seen as its final meeting -- to discuss various aspects, including contentious ones like data localisation, classification of sensitive personal data and the telecom regulator TRAI's recent recommendations on data privacy and ownership.
Emerging from the two-and-a-half hour meeting, Justice Srikrishna declined to comment on the deliberations held at the closed-door meeting.
