The central government is working on a new draft of the Digital Data Protection Bill 2022. This year, during the monsoon session of Parliament, the government can present the Personal Data Protection Bill introduced in 2019 in the Lok Sabha.


According to sources, the government is looking to include the following provisions in the proposed new draft bill to regulate the social media space:

  • It is necessary to include a stringent provision of punishment in the draft bill in case of violation of the provisions of the law by the data processor or data fiduciary.
  • If the data processor or data fiduciary fails to take proper security measures to protect the personal data of common citizens, then they can be fined up to Rs 200 crore.
  • The draft bill is also considering a proposal to impose a fine of Rs 10,000 to Rs 150 crore for failure to comply with other provisions of the law.
  • The new draft bill may include a proposal to set up a Data Protection Board of India to administer and enforce the provisions to be included in the draft.
  • The draft of the new bill is expected to be made public soon for public consultation.

The new measure, now up for public consultation, is expected to be presented in the next session of parliament. The measure, aimed at protecting digital personal data, seeks to allow transfer of data outside India, and provides for penalties regarding data breaches.


The Indian government is thinking to raised the penalty amount to up to ₹500 crore for violating the provisions proposed under the draft Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2022 issued on this Friday. The draft personal data protection bill was introduced in Lok Sabha in 2019 and it proposed a penalty of ₹15 crore or 4 per cent of the global turnover of an entity.
