In the ongoing winter session of the parliament, the government is expected to table the draft of Personal Data Protection Bill. The Bill was approved by the Union Cabinet last week and is now waiting for discussions in the Lok Sabha. But beyond the parliament, the bill is still under the scanner of various stakeholders who are concerned about its impact on business.
The latest in the line are epharma startups, who have spent crores on marketing in the past few months. It has been reported that the epharma startups are now concerned about the definition of ‘sensitive personal data’ which may impact how they seek information from their users.-Inc42
