Hi, what are you looking for?

List of Submissions on the Personal Data Protection Bill made to MEITY

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology, which will be drafting India’s Data Protection Bill, has not made submissions public, neither those sent to the Srikrishna Committee, nor those sent as feedback on the Draft Personal Data Protection Bill.

MediaNama reached out to participants at our discussions on privacy and data protection, and asked them to share their submissions with us, for making them public. Dvara Research has also compiled a list of submissions.

MediaNama will also be filing a Right to Information request, asking for MEITY to make the submissions public.

If you’ve submitted your comments to MEITY, and would like them to be included in this list, please email your submissions to research@medianama.com.
