SC declines Centre's offer to place committee's report on data protection

The Supreme Court today declined the Centre's offer to place on record the report of Justice B N Srikrishna committee on data protection for perusal of the five-judge Constitution bench. 

A five-judge bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra, on May 10, had reserved verdict on pleas challenging the constitutional validity of Centre's flagship Aadhaar scheme and its enabling 2016 law.

Attorney General K K Venugopal, appearing for the Centre, told the court that Srikrishna committee has recently submitted Personal Data Protection Bill, 2018 and its report and the Centre can submit it, if the court wishes so.

The committee has suggested measures to be taken when it comes to protecting the personal information of citizens, the role and duties of data processors and the rights of individuals. 

The report also talked about the penalties that may be imposed for violation of these data protection measures.
