Voice Your Views on DPDPA Rules: It is now or may be never

The DPDPA 2023 was gazetted on August 11, 2023. However, the Government could not pass the rules and notify the Act before the elections and it is now scheduled for the 100 days agenda of the Modi 3.0 Government.

It is expected that the rules will first be released as “Draft” for eliciting the public response before being notified for effectiveness.

It is very important for all the industries to ensure that they study the rules and record their suggestions before the rules are notified. If they are complacent, it may be difficult to bring changes later.

So far it is the industry has been responsible for the delay in the introduction of the Data Protection laws by objecting to every move made by the Government to introduce the law out of fear of the unknown. We hope the resolve of the Government this time is strong and the notification will go as scheduled.

FDPPI therefore intends that the industry in different sectors study the rules assimilate its consequences and then provide it’s suggestions in time for the Government to accommodate as many views as feasible.

FDPPI therefore has organized a symposium in Bengaluru on 27th July 2024 to collate the voice of the different segments of the industry.

The Venue of the Conference is Suchitra Film Society Auditorium at : 36, 9th Main, B V Karanth Road, 9th Main Road, near Post Office, Banashankari Stage II, Banashankari, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560070.

The tentative program includes discussions in multiple panels as follows:

  1. Panel 1: FDPPI: Introducing the observations of FDPPI
  2. Panel 2: Health Sector: Impact of DPDPA Rules on Health Sector
  3. Panel 3:Fintech: Impact of DPDPA Rules on Fintech Sector
  4. Panel 4: Education: Impact of DPDPA Rules on Education Sector
  5. Panel 5: Other Industries: Impact of DPDPA Rules on Digital marketing and Manufacturing Sector

The program is a hybrid program with speakers joining from all over India. The feedback received from the industry will be briefly discussed and collated for subsequent submission to MeitY.
