Next draft of PDPB cleared by JPC

As per the reports in press, the JPC has finalized the next draft of the PDPB in a meeting today. The draft would be submitted to the speaker of Loksabha and would be presented to the Parliament during the next session.

It is also reported that Mr Jairam Ramesh of Congress has submitted a dissenting note basically on Section 35 which is about the powers of the Government to exempt some of the provisions of the Act to Government agencies.

The exact nature of changes that have been made would be available only after the draft becomes public. Until then there is no need to speculate.

However, it appears that the possibility of the bill being passed in the current session itself is very high.
