Data Protection Efforts in India: Blind Leading the Blind?

Latha R Nair

This paper, after establishing the need for effective data protection in India, goes on to
describe the rudimentary measures taken in the country till date in the sphere of data
protection. While highlighting the inadequacy of such measures and the ambiguity in
proposed amendments, the author seeks inspiration from European Union law in
proposing a broad framework for data protection law in India.
