Apro­pos ‘For Data Pro­tec­tion Mi­nus Data Res­i­dency’ (Aug 4). You are right to say that data on In­di­ans should nec­es­sar­ily re­side in In­dia, and that the ‘mi­nus res­i­dency’ fea­ture must be re­moved. To­wards this ob­jec­tive, two ac­tions are needed. Firstly, In­dia must nec­es­sar­ily pos­sess ad­e­quate data cen­tre ca­pac­ity within the coun­try. Se­condly, it must have sov­er­eign con­trol on In­ter­net over its soil. Surely, a wider de­bate on global best prac­tices in data pro­tec­tion, lead­ing to a firm pol­icy will help.
