India is withdrawing its Personal Data Protection Bill that drew scrutiny from several tech giants who feared the legislation could restrict how they managed sensitive information.

The Indian government is withdrawing its long-awaited Personal Data Protection Bill that drew scrutiny from several privacy advocates and tech giants who feared the legislation could restrict how they managed sensitive information while giving government broad powers to access it.

The move comes as a surprise as lawmakers had indicated recently that the bill, unveiled in 2019, could see the “light of the day” soon. New Delhi received dozen of amendments and recommendations from a Joint Committee of Parliament that “identified many issues that were relevant but beyond the scope of a modern digital privacy law,” said India’s Junior IT Minister Rajeev Chandrasekhar.
