On the draft privacy bill…

There is some good news for those who are worried about the impact of UID on privacy. A senior bureaucrat in the department of personnel and training told ET that the draft bill on privacy, currently being drafted by the DoPT, makes it clear that no institution can share a person’s data with a third party without the individual’s consent.

a small story out today on the draft right to privacy bill. this was written as a followup to another story i wrote last month about the new threats to privacy in an age of biometrics. see that one too. anyway, the draft bill is expected to be back in the public domain for comments before finalisation. will have to keep tabs on it to ensure such clauses stay intact.
