IFF has sent its comments pursuant to NITI Aayog’s draft Data Empowerment and Protection Architecture (DEPA) policy. The policy aims to introduce a new consent sharing mechanism that ostensibly aims to centre such mechanims on the agency of users.
In our comments, we highlighted the following issues:
- the need to ensure that truly informed consent is given;
- orienting new technology towards the interests of citizens;
- the implementation of a strong and robust regulatory framework ;
- expanding the role of civil society;
What other issues do you think we should have highlighted?
