  4. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS . The Justice BN Srikrishna committee has submitted its report on data protection to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad. Titled, "A Free and Fair Digital Economy Protecting Privacy, Empowering Indians", the report was submitted during a press event at the IT Ministry, along with a draft Data Protection Bill. After months of speculation about its release and a string of delays, the report will now be reviewed by Prasad and forwarded to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Among various measures, the 10-member committee, which was constituted on July 31 last year, has suggested moves to safeguard personally sensitive information, make provisions for localised storage of data and ensure consent for processing of data.

  5. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS Processing and Collection of Personal Data The committee recommends that processing (collection, recording, analysis, disclosure, etc) of personal data should be done only for "clear, specific and lawful" purposes. Only that data which is necessary for such processing is to be collected from anyone. One of the more problematic suggestions of the committee is that they suggest that your personal data may be processed by the government if this is considered necessary for any function of Parliament or State Legislature. This includes provision of services, issuing of licenses, etc. On the face of it, this looks extremely vague and could lead to misuse. AMAN SHARMA


  6. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS Right to be Forgotten The committee recommends giving "data principals" (persons whose personal data is being processed) the 'right to be forgotten'. This means they will be able to restrict or prevent any display of their personal data once the purpose of disclosing the data has ended, or when the data principal withdraws consent from disclosure of their personal data. In the EU, this has been used by people to get unflattering records of them on news websites taken down after the matter is no longer a matter of public interest. This right is one of several given to data principals, including the right to confirm what information is being held or disclosed about them, and to get this corrected if necessary. AMAN SHARMA


  7. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS Data Localisation Personal data will need to be stored on servers located within India, and transfers outside the country will need to be subject to safeguards. Critical personal data, however, will only be processed in India. AMAN SHARMA


  8. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS Processing of Sensitive Personal Data to Require Explicit Consent . The Committee recommends that "sensitive" personal data (such as passwords, financial data, sexual orientation, biometric data, religion or caste) should not be processed unless someone gives explicit consent which factors in the purpose of processing. . So, if you have disclosed your sexual orientation in a survey where you were told it would be used to assess the numbers of people with such orientation in a particular place, your name and orientation cannot then be sent to an advertising agency to send you targeted ads, as this is different from the purpose you had agreed on. AMAN SHARMA


  9. Srikrishna Committee Report TOPIC IN NEWS RTI Act Amendments The Committee recommends the amendment amend section 8(1)(j) of the RTI Act that pertains to the disclosure of personal information in the larger public interest. The old 8(1)(i) said there would be no obligation to reveal personal information which was not related to "public activity or interest", or would be an invasion ofAct 2005 | Right To Information RIGHT TO INFORMATION rivac . The new 8(1)(j) looks at a balancing act etween the public interest in accessing the information on one hand, and the harm that could be caused to the data principal on the other. AMAN SHARMA


  10. Srikrishna Committee Report Aadhaar Act Amendments TOPIC IN NEWS The Committee has suggested recommendations to the Aadhaar Act 2016 to ensure autonomy of the UIDAl and "bolster data protection". These include offline verification of Aadhaar numbers and new civil and criminal penalties - though the ability to file complaints will remain with the UIDAI alone. AMAN SHARMA
