#Ad: MediaNama's is holding a round table discussion on the governance of non-personal data on August 6 and 7, 2020. You can apply to attend here. The Committee of Experts on Non-Personal Data Governance Framework has recommended that a separate legislation be formulated to govern non-personal data, and a new regulatory body, while also addressing a long standing question: what exactly is Non-Personal Data? In its draft report, released on July 12, 2020, the committee has defined non-personal data as any data that is not related to an identified or identifiable natural person, or is personal data that has been anonymised. It has said that Non-Personal Data (NPD) should be regulated by a new regulatory body, the Non-Personal Data Authority (NPDA). This data, the committee recommends, should be further classified into three categories — public NPD, community NPD, and private NPD. The report identifies and defines new stakeholders in the non-personal data ecosystem, including data principal, data custodian, data trustee, and data trust, and contours their obligations and mechanisms to enable data sharing. It has also sets circumstances under which a private organisation, that collects non-personal data, needs to be remunerated. Public Consultation The draft report of the expert committee that MEITY had formed in September 2019 to come up with a data governance framework for non-personal data is available here. Anyone can submit comments till August 13, 2020, 11:45pm, via the MyGov platform (here). To submit comments, users have to declare that “The feedbacks submitted here will be kept…
