Digital India Act-7: Data Monetization

While the DPDPB 2022 was under formulation, had discussed certain desired changes in the law which are available at the following link;

Amongst the several things discussed, we had discussed some aspects of the new DIA during September 2022. At that time, there was a possibility that there could have been a single Act for both Personal Data and Non Personal Data Protection/Governance. In particular, we refer to the following articles.

We may now observe that the new version of the law also refers to a coverage on Monetization .

We need to see how the DPDPB2022 be integrated to the concept of Monetization. Hopefully “Anonymised Personal Data” will be available for monetization under DIA along with non personal data. Some of the suggestions of the Kris Gopalakrishna report on monetization of non personal data may also be included in this Act.
