Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Bill, 2023 has received the assent of President Draupadi Murmu. The bill, which is now an Act, was passed by the Lok Sabha on August 7, 2023, and by the Rajya Sabha on August 9, 2023. The government will now initiate the framing and rolling out of rules and regulations of the Act, which is likely to be done within the next 6-10 months.
According to Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister of Communications, Electronics and Information Technology and Railways, the administrative regulations to be rolled out will be kept simple and there will not be a multitude of layers of rules. The implementation structure will be entirely digital and work on the rules and regulation framework has already started.
