The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY) is planning to issue a whitepaper on non-personal data (community, anonymised and e-commerce data) held by companies, including Uber, Google and Amazon, which would be used to frame a policy on non-personal data regulation.

The centre may consider allowing the ministries or regulators to select the kind of data to be included under the purview of the policy.

The move follows the recent round of consultation held with select stakeholders over the draft Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill. Under the consultation, MeitY had sought an opinion on the contours of a policy for non-personal data, besides seeking feedback on issues such as data localisation.

Further, it had inquired whether there was a case to mandate free access to community, anonymised or e-commerce data, among others and if the Data Protection Authority (DPA) should be considered as the regulator in respect of all non-personal data.

As per industry sources, the views received through this consultation could form the ground for a white paper that can be opened for wider public consultation before a policy on non-personal data regulation is formed.
