Government working on new legal framework on tech, internet: MoS IT

Minister of State for Electronics and IT Rajiv Chandrashekhar on Thursday said that a new legal framework in the country around technology and internet will start taking shape and the Data Protection Bill is the first step in that direction.

Chandrashekhar further said that digitization of government and public services is going to happen “rapidly” and the soon-to-be unveiled Digital India 2.0 will seek to accelerate the gains made in the past few years.

The minister said the government is committed to ensuring that the internet and technology remain open, safe, secure and accountable, as 1.2 billion Indians will come online in the next few years.

“A new modern legal framework around technology and the Internet will start to take shape in the country, the first step being the data protection bill that you will see soon in the next few months. This again introduces interesting changes to the overall operating environment.” Chandrashekhar said while addressing the concluding session of Aadhaar 2.0 workshop.

He also supported the need to create a “Trusted Common Digital ID” for every citizen of India.

The minister said issues of national security are “real issues” and therefore there will be a growing demand and need for reliable IDs and the ability to validate citizenship, he said.
