TRAI to draft broad principles relating to data ownership, security and privacy

May 22, 2018

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) is expected to soon formulate and place the broad principles on data ownership, security and privacy before the government. However, the regulator will not recommend rigid guidelines.

According to the TRAI, the data security and privacy space is still evolving and changing very fast. Therefore, hard-coding anything will be difficult, as it may become obsolete tomorrow. Principles, on the other hand, are more important because they do not become obsolete as soon.

In August 2017, the TRAI had floated a consultation paper to identify the scope and definition of personal data and ownership, and control of user data by telecom service providers, apart from identifying the rights and responsibilities of data controllers. The consultation paper was followed by an open house discussion in February 2018.

The government hopes that the first draft of the recommendations on data protection legislation by the committee will be completed by June 2018.
