DPDP Bill, 2022: What are the rights of individuals? And what has changed from earlier?

Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2022 omits ‘right to be forgotten’ in sections dealing with rights of individual data principals, among other changes

Key takeaways All individuals get the right to know how their data is processed from data fiduciaries including identity of parties with whom their personal data has been shared for processing. The draft removes right to be forgotten and leaves only the right to erase personal data for a vcry specific purpose, reducing the scope dramatically from previous versions of the bill. An individual can seek to get their personal data erased once their data is not needed for the purpose that was stated at the time of obtaining consent. There is no provision on data portability as compared to previous drafts of the bill which mandated data fiduciaries to transfer data on request.  A grievance redressal mechanism has been proposed in the bill to address issues of individuals within seven days of the complaint. The Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2022 presented by the Indian government after years of deliberation confers certain rights upon data principals (or individuals) such as the right to know how data fiduciaries process their personal data, correction and erasure of personal data, grievance redressal, among other things. The set of rights offer data principals an opportunity to prevent or restrict continued disclosure of their personal data. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) has announced that the public can send their comments on the MyGov website by December 17, 2022. It revealed that there will be no public disclosure of the submissions. https://twitter.com/ANI/status/1593540847899115520 You can read the entire draft of the bill here.…
