A bill is expected in India’s Parliament that would regulate how tech giants operate within the country, serving to rein in how companies collect, aggregate, store and process Indian user data, Bloomberg reports. The proposed framework would establish fair use, trans-border data flows, mechanisms to enforce accountability, and penalties for violations and would establish user control over data. Led by former Supreme Court Judge B.N. Srikrishna, the measure aims to capture middle ground between Europe’s new data protection regulation and data protection in the U.S. He said, “Like we keep diabetes and blood pressure in check, controls are needed for data,” adding, “Companies like Amazon, Google, Microsoft, and Flipkart are extremely nervous.”
