Former Supreme Court of India Justice B.N. Srikrishna, who led efforts to draft the nation's newly proposed Personal Data Protection Bill, sat down for an interview with The Indian Express to discuss the draft bill, as well as the Aadhaar Act, government access to citizen data, and the need for a data protection authority. Though he acknowledges there "is a lot of good stuff in Aadhaar," there is room for improvement, as well. He also argues that a DPA "is absolutely necessary. Technology is changing every half an hour and Parliament does not meet that often." Srikrishna also discusses his thoughts on data ownership and problems inherent in algorithmic transparency.
