Data Protection Bill: State Minister for Electronics and IT (MOS) Rajeev Chandrasekhar (MET) on Wednesday said the data protection bill would come soon during a special conversation with G Business.
Noting that many steps have been taken to make cyberspace better and more secure, the Minister said that this cycle will continue.
According to the minister, the data protection law will protect the rights and privacy of citizens. Efforts will be made to create a safe ecosystem with these guidelines. The government will issue some more such rules and guidelines in the coming days. They have been given 60 days to consent. In fact, the risk has increased, so it is necessary to bring such instructions, he said. There is a big difference between 2011 and 2022 and the number of internet users has also increased. At the same time, the government will bring changes in the Information Technology Act, he said.
The central government will also change the IT rules, he added.
The government wants to warn people about cyberspace through mediating guidelines and frequently asked questions (frequently asked questions).
