Google CEO Sundar Pichai writes to Ravi Shankar Prasad, advocates free cross-border data flow

The Economic Times
Google Chief Executive Sundar Pichai has written to IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad advocating free flow of data across borders. He said that such a step will encourage global companies to contribute to India's digital economy. 


In a letter earlier this week, which was made available to the media, Pichai said that the free flow of data across borders would also benefit Indian startups looking to expand globally. The Google CEO also said the company remains firmly committed to being part of the Indian growth story.
 

Earlier this week, the government reiterated its firm stand on data privacy and against online platforms abusing data to impact free choice in India. In July, the Justice BN Srikrishna Committee on data protection in India submitted its report to the government suggesting amendments to various laws, including the Aadhaar Act, to provide for the imposition of penalties on data fiduciaries for violations of the data protection law.
