Thank you sir, @Rohin_Garg has been following these development closely. The objective of this brief to deepen our existing engagement with parliamentarians and lawmakers. Here over the years we have been able to assist and provide inputs to several members of parliament cutting across party lines on a wide variety of digital rights issues.
We will as we have done in the past reach out to MPs individually and seek their time for meetings and analyse the Data Bill when it is tabled by the Joint Parlimentary Committee to seek improvements. At the same time let me indicate that many MPS by their own initiative such as Mr. Jairam Ramesh are well aware of the need for a strong data protection statute in India. We will do our best to support them.
As an aside, I would also like to pragmatically pose on what may be possible in the short term may not be substantive changes to the draft that is tabled by the Government in Parliament. This is due to the numerical breakup of the existing assembly. However, we are more optimistic in the long term that a more rights focussed law will evolve through a process of public advocacy, legal changes through amendments and court rulings.
IFF will work with other groups, organisations and individuals and do our very best!
