On 16th December 2021, the Joint Parliamentary Committee submitted their report to the Indian Parliament in regard to the Personal Data Protection Bill 2019 upon deliberation of upto two years for framing a robust data protection regulation for India. The Committee was then presented with the “revised” Data Protection Bill, 2021 Even though no specifically dedicated legislation in India addresses data privacy and data protection on a Sector-Nuteral basis, currently in India, data privacy and protection is governed under the Information Technology Act, 2000 and the Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011.

In Justice K.S. Puttaswamy v UOI and Ors., the Supreme Court held that “the Right to Privacy is a basic fundamental right which resulted in changing the
jurisprudence of privacy laws in India where the right to privacy is upheld as an inalienable, inherent, and natural right which is indispensable to a dignified life in accordance with Article 21 of the Indian Constitution.
