Rajya Sabha passes Digital Personal Data Protection Bill amid Opposition walkout

The Rajya Sabha approved the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill (DPDPB) through a voice vote on Wednesday, following the Opposition's exit from the session on the Manipur issue. The Bill, initially presented in the Lok Sabha, garnered acceptance for consideration via a voice vote despite Opposition calls to refer it to a standing committee for further assessment. The legislation, endorsed by the Lok Sabha on August 7, outlines regulations for private entities involved in online data collection and provides certain exemptions for government and law enforcement agencies. Union Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw hailed the Bill, highlighting its significance in Prime Minister Modi's Digital India vision. Notably, the bill alters the Right to Information Act, curbing the disclosure of personal information.
