Data protection bill will strengthen legal framework: Vaishnav

New Delhi, Nov 23 (PTI) Committing to protecting privacy, Information Technology Minister Ashwini Vaishnav on Tuesday said the proposed data protection bill will further strengthen the legal framework relating to privacy.

Vaishnav told a workshop on ‘Aadhaar’ that the concerns being raised regarding certain provisions of the proposed bill have been looked into by a joint committee of Parliament. “Parliamentary committee will present its report in Parliament. Only after that one should comment on it.

The report of the Joint Parliamentary Committee on Personal Data Protection Bill, constituted on Monday, was accepted. However, MPs of some opposition parties have reportedly disagreed with this report.

When asked about this, the Information Technology Minister did not comment. He certainly said that the government is “extremely committed” to safeguarding the privacy of the citizens and residents of the country.

He said that earlier privacy concerns were also raised regarding Aadhaar number but those too have been resolved. “The data protection bill will further strengthen the privacy legal framework,” he said.
