Data protection law mooted The government is mulling a new data protection law to protect personal data of citizens, while also creating an enabling framework to allow public data to be mined effectively Why it was needed The move assumes significance amid the debate over security of individuals' private data including Aadhaar-linked biometrics, and the rising number of cyber-crimes in the country Once the PMO approves it, The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEIT) will set up a "cross-functional committee" on the issue Govt is working with two main aims to ensure that personal data of individuals remain i e / rotected and is not misused, and to unlock the data econom Beneficial Data- Lot of benefits can be derived from the data that is publicly available, by using technology and big data analytics Challenges Currently, India does not have a separate law for data protection, and there is no body that specifically regulates data privacy There is nominally a data protection law in India in the form of the Reasonable Security Guidelines under Section 43A of the Information Technology Act, However, it is a toothless law and is never used. Even when data leaks such as the ones from the official Narendra Modi app or McDonald's McDelivery app have happened, section 43A and its rules have not proven of use Privacy is a fundamental human right, recognised as such in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. India has ratified the UN's International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which contains an obligation to protect privacy
Linking of PAN to Aadhaar fine: SC The Supreme Court on Friday It requiring citizens to "directly connected with the issue of duplicate/fake PANs was It held that Section 139AA (1) was not violative of the right to trade and profession under Article 19(1(g) of the Constitution insofar as it mandates giving of Aadhaar enrolment number for applying for PAN cards in the income tax returns or notified Aadhaar enrolment number to the designated authorities Neither did the court find Section 139AA discriminatory. We do not find any conflict between the provisions of Aadhaar Act and Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act inasmuch as when interpreted harmoniously, they operate in distinct fields... lon 13 f he na makes it Aadhaar number to the authorities for filing income tax returns. Those who have enrolled for Aadhaar are also free to do the same -that is, the effect of non-compliance would be the automatic invalidation of their PAN as if it had never existed
Court order baffles income tax experts The Supreme Court may have granted relief to tax payers without Aadhaar numbers by allowing them to file So far, the government has issued 29 crore PAN cards and 112 crore Aadhaar cards. The question is how government will ascertain which PAN cardholders have Aadhaar and which don't. There is no way they can prove that you have both PAN and Aadhaar, since Aadhaar is not mandatory for PAN and PAN is not mandatory for Aad-haar, have both Aadhaar and PAN through cross-referencing
