  • The Economic Times reports members of Indian Parliament remain engaged on amending the draft Data Protection Bill, 2019, with an eye to tabling and passing the legislation during Parliament's Monsoon Session beginning in July. Minister of Electronics & Information Technology Ashwini Vaishnaw rejected prior reports of a potential re-draft of the DPB, calling the bill a "complex subject" that "we should be able to resolve ... very soon."
  • A coalition of international trade groups sent a letter to Vaishnaw regarding recommendations made by a Joint Parliamentary Committee to amend the draft Data Protection Bill, 2019, The Economic Times reports.
