The Digital Personal Data Protection (DPDP) Act, 2023, is crucial legislation in India that governs the processing of digital personal data. It applies to both digital and digitized data, regardless of whether it was initially collected inside or outside India. The Act aims to enhance data protection and accountability for entities like internet companies, mobile apps, and businesses handling citizens' data.

The DPDP Act significantly impacts businesses, particularly in the consumer industry, by imposing regulations on e-commerce and direct-to-consumer businesses. It mandates new protocols for compliance, investments in data security technologies, and user and staff education on data privacy rights.

Key provisions of the DPDP Act include

  • Rights for data subjects: access, correction, deletion, and grievance redressal.
  • Obligations for data controllers (data fiduciaries) in processing data subjects' (data principals) personal data.
  • Penalties for non-compliance.
  • Establishment of a central authority to monitor compliance and address data misuse.

To comply with the DPDP Act, organizations should:

  • Assess the applicability of the Act to their operations.
  • Develop a consent request process with clear notices and contact information for the data protection officer.
  • Establish and maintain secure device configurations.
  • Create processes for obtaining verifiable consent from parents or guardians of children (under 18) and persons with disabilities.
