Health Care Data Privacy Act (Proposed) is being drafted by the Union Health Ministry to codify the privacy and security of health information of individuals in India.
This will be the first sector specific laws for Privacy Protection in India.
The law is in its preliminary stage and we need to wait and see how it shapes up and how it interacts with the ITA 2000/8 which also contains provisions on Data Privacy and Security.
We will follow the developments exclusively with special reference to the website www.hdpsa.in dedicated to this new proposed law.
