The bill is expected to come with a data-localisation provision that will require all foreign companies to install their servers within India to store the data collected from Indian nationals. The bill was presented before parliament by India's Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) in December 2019.
As of March 2020, the draft had been analysed by a Joint Parliamentary Committee in consultation with experts and stakeholders. So far, it remains unclear when the bill will come into force.
