Personal critical user data Must be processed only within India, a government panel said on Friday, among other recommendations that are likely to form the basis of a new data protection law.
The recommendations come in a time when there is increased scrutiny by governments throughout the world on how firms manage user information.
The Indian authorities should determine categories of sensitive personal data that are”crucial to the nation in regards to strategic interests and authorities”, the board, led by former Supreme Court of India judge B.N. Srikrishna, said in its report.
The report was awaited by international technology companies for its perspectives on data localisation.
