Giving consent in digital world by Harsh Vardhan Chaturvedi @lexcliq

India’s data protection bill has been in the works since early 2018. After the judgment in the Puttaswamy case holding privacy to be a fundamental right under Article 21 of the Constitution, the government established a committee under Justice BN Srikrishna which came up with recommendations on India’s personal data protection law. Based, on the recommendations of the committee, the draft bill was prepared. However, the bill has been doing the rounds of parliament ever since and has undergone significant changes.
The parliamentary select committee that is now discussing the Personal Data Protection Bill has talked about introducing the concept of “digitally-enabled consent” for any use of a person’s data and its management.
At present, the user gets one chance in the beginning to give access to data that cannot be changed later, but removing this the government wants to provide to the user’s option to give and withdraw consent in real-time. They have talked about outlining the functions of the company to properly explain the scope of data sharing and usage by the company based on which the user can form an informed opinion. And based on their understanding of the proper scope of usage of their data, the users can give digital consent through the use of their digital signature.
Apart from this, the bill has also undergone other significant changes over its draft. It has been 3 years since the bill was introduced and Government has yet not tabled the bill in the parliament which is putting data of many Indians at risk amid an increase in cyber attacks.


My name is Harsh vardhan chaturvedi. I belong to Agra (Uttar Pradesh). I am currently pursing B.Tech in Computer Science with LLB (Hons.) specialisation in Cyber Laws. I am a self motivated person. I have been in situations where i was not having any motivation to proceed further. Like choosing a branch such as cyber law where your parents are also not sure about the future of the branch. Motivating yourself to move further in this field of law is a great example of self motivation. A person who does not have any legal background motivating himself for this course which involves study of two different areas itself is a challenging task. I am very good at managing tasks as i have been the Event head of UURJA i.e fest of UPES. I try to take part in every activity whether it is curricular, co-curricular or extra curricular. I believe a person should not only focus on academics but also focus on other activities for overall development. I have great legal drafting skills. In my free time i love to portrait landscape . My hobbies includes travelling and photography. I believe travelling make you learn how one should never stop when they want to reach their goal. Travelling are challenging but one should never look back once started. Hence each treks and travel has always taught me something. I have always been a fan of movies which calms you down. I have a passion for everything i do and i believe this passion makes me going.
