“That this House do extend up to the last week of the Winter Session of Parliament, 2021, the time for presentation of the Report of the Joint Committee on the Personal Data Protection Bill, 2019,” read the note “Revised List of Business” uploaded on Lok Sabha website.

The JCP on the Bill, that seeks to regulate the use of individual’s data by the government and private companies, was constituted in the Lok Sabha in December 2019 and was expected to submit its report in the Budget Session.

But panel chairman, Chaudhary of the ruling BJP, moved a motion in July seeking extension up to the Winter Session of Parliament for the 30-member panel to submit its report. That was for the fifth time the committee’s tenure has been extended.

The draft of the Bill has called for storing sensitive personal data in India, obligations of data fiduciaries to deploy safeguards, and grievance redressal mechanism. The proposal for the bill came after the Supreme Court declared in 2017 privacy a fundamental right and directed the government to come up with the data protection regime.
