This document summarises our round table discussion on Non-Personal Data, held in Delhi on November 28, 2019. The discussion saw participation from multiple stakeholders (lawyers, policy professionals, academics).
Definition of non-personal data and whether anonymisation is absolute emerged as key issues. Asserting intellectual property rights over data, especially NPD, and giving competitors access to NPD were also discussed extensively. Participants highlighted concerns about sharing NPD with government, and made recommendations that could help the committee of experts that is to come up with a governance framework for NPD.
