Abstract

This paper is a part of a series setting out our position on a data protection framework for India. All the papers in this series are based on our response to Committee of Experts set up by the Indian Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology for the implementation of data protection laws in India. Each paper is designed to break down our responses and position on the issues it addresses.

This paper sets out the context for the data protection law. It discusses the reasons and purpose for regulation and what specifically will be regulated. It also discusses who will be regulated, since this is important while considering the regulatory strategies to use while implementing the data protection principles.
