According to Ashwini Vaishnaw, Union Minister of Communications, Electronics and Information Technology and Railways, the parliamentary standing committee on information technology (IT) and communications has examined and approved the draft Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Bill.

During his address at the Nasscom Technology Leadership Forum 2023, the minister said that the DPDP Bill 2022 could be sent to the parliament in 2023. The government published the much-awaited draft bill in November 2022. The revised bill focuses only on personal data, thereby doing away with regulating the use of non-personal data.
