This refers to ‘Pri­vate Life in the Coun­try’ by Pawan Goyal (Aug 3). The pri­vacy con­cerns need to be ef­fec­tively ad­dressed in the pro­posed data pro­tec­tion law. The clause on data res­i­dency should en­sure un­hin­dered ex­change of in­for­ma­tion of In­di­ans re­sid­ing in for­eign ju­ris­dic­tions. Ad­e­quate safe­guards against use of data other than for agreed pur­poses should also be in place. With the in­creas­ing use of data an­a­lyt­ics, there is an ur­gent need for a bind­ing treaty un­der the aegis of the United Na­tions to en­sure pri­vacy rights of all in­di­vid­u­als, ir­re­spec­tive of na­tion­al­ity.
