India to introduce new data protection law soon

A new law on data privacy and protection will be brought into place, Union Law Minster Ravi Shankar Prasad has said.

After India Today’s expose pointing out that a number of Indian political consultancies are also culling out user-data and selling that information to political parties for target messaging during election campaigns, the Election Commission said that action will be taken.
