NEW DELHI: The joint parliamentary committee (JPC) on the Personal Data Protection Bill adopted its draft report on Monday with at least seven members of the 31-member committee moving dissent notes against various provisions.
The revised offering withdrew contentious portions that were seen to let off big tech with relatively small penalties for violations, even as it retained provisions to exempt government agencies from the purview of the law.
The panel, headed by BJP MP P P Chaudhary, did not concede recommendations by some members that the Centre should not have “unbridled powers” to exempt any government agency from the purview of the privacy laws and this remains the case in the draft that was finally adopted. Members who moved dissent notes include Congress’s Jairam Ramesh, Manish Tewari, Gaurav Gogoi & TMC’s Mahua Moitra.
