Strictness in the data protection, one needs permission to use fingerprint and face unlock 

DEC 13 (WTN) - If you have devices like Alexa and Google Home, being commanded through voice, then it may stop working in India in the coming days, or you need permission from the government to use these devices. At the same time, even taking the necessary data for mobile fingerprint or face unlock, the government's approval will be required. After reading all this, you must be thinking what is going to happen after this, then for your information, let us tell you that if the Personal Data Protection Bill is passed in the Parliament, then technology like Alexa and Google Home can either be shut down or else Permission may have to be taken from the government for its use.

In fact, since the WhatsApp espionage case, there is a lot of pressure on the Modi government to enact a stringent law to protect the data of the Indian people. In this context, the Modi government is going to introduce the Data Protection Bill for the approval of Parliament. It is being said that this bill will be referred to the Joint Parliamentary Committee. Following the recommendations of the committee, this bill will be laid on the Table of the House. After the passage of Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha, this bill will become law after the President's approval.

By the way, if everything remains as per the intention of the Modi government, the data protection bill could soon become the law. And if this bill becomes law, then electronics gadgets being commanded from voice command technology such as Alexa and Google Home could stop working. This is why because in the new data protection bill, it would be necessary to take the approval of the government even for taking data for voice command, mobile fingerprint or face unlock.

According to experts, if the data protection bill is passed, then the electronic device operated by voice command will be stopped. At the same time, it will also be difficult to open a mobile phone through fingerprint and face unlock. The bill would also prohibit taking biometrics from customers. If an agency or company wants to get the customers' biometrics, then it has to get approval from the government. 

Under this proposed law, if any government or private agency wants to take personal data of a consumer or store, then it must first take the consent of the consumer. On the other hand, if a company wants to get the biometric data of the consumer, then it has to first take approval from the government for this. Not only this, strict rules have been made in this proposed law to secure the data of children. If this bill becomes law, then the government will have unlimited power over the data and any government agency can use private data.

In order to keep people's data secure, it will be mandatory for all companies or agencies collecting data to share data with the government. A data protection authority is also proposed to be set up for all this. If any government or private agency or company leaks or sells someone's personal data, then the data protection bill provides for heavy fines and punishment for it. At the same time, the government can use private data or government agency data at any time on the basis of sovereignty or public order. 

In order to keep people's data safe, this bill proposes that if an executive looking after the charge of data business is found guilty in the data leak case, he/she can also face up to three years in jail. This much-awaited bill proposes that any officer of the company if found deliberately doing the work of identifying the person or processing the data against the rules of the people of India by matching the anonymous data with the public data, he can be punished and will be sent to jail.

The Personal Data Protection Bill proposes to impose a penalty of up to Rs 15 crore on companies or up to 4 per cent of their global business (whichever is higher) in any major breach of data leaks or sales. At the same time, it has been proposed to impose a fine of up to Rs 5 crore or 2 per cent of global business in such small cases. That is it is clear that the Modi government is very sensitive and strict in the matter of data protection. The government does not want any kind of tampering or theft of the data of the people with which they face harassment.
