Takshashila Blue Paper: Charting a New Framework for Data Protection in India

This Blue Paper was prepared as a result of a roundtable discussion organised by the Takshashila Institution on 4 September 2017, based on the Discussion Document, Beyond Consent: A New Paradigm for Data Protection.

The discussion document brings forth a rights-based model (Rights Model) to help secure the interests of a data subject sharing his data with data controllers.

The Blue Paper highlights the recommendations of the all participants at the roundtable discussion, which was chaired by Rahul Matthan.
