In the dynamic realm of digital information, India has embarked on a journey to fortify the safeguards around personal data through its evolving data protection laws. The genesis of this initiative can be traced back to the Supreme Court seminal judgment in the Puttaswamy case which led to the various iterations of the Personal Data Protection Bills, finally culminating in the Personal Data Protection Act, 2023. As we stand on the cusp of a new era in data governance, businesses operating within India must proactively adapt to comply with the stringent provisions set forth by the legislation. This article serves as a comprehensive guide, offering actionable insights and a compliance checklist to empower companies in aligning their practices with the requirements of India’s new data protection law.
