According to Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister of Communications, Electronics and Information Technology and Railways, the government is working on a new version of the data protection bill and proposed Digital India law to make the online world more accountable. Additionally, the minister informed that the government would float a new telecom bill within a week.

During the launch of the second batch of Cytrain Setu, Vaishnaw said that technologies could also be used in preventing crimes. There is a global consensus within the G20 group of digital ministers on the need to make technology providers accountable for what they are providing.

Emphasising the role of telecom in the digital world, the minister added that the government will upload the new telecom bill within the next five to six days. He asked the participants to evaluate the bill and come up with suggestions.
