  • A government committee headed by Infosys co-founder Kris Gopalakrishnan has suggested that non-personal data generated in the country be allowed to be harnessed by various domestic companies and entities.
  • Non-personal data is any set of data which does not contain personally identifiable information.
  • This in essence means that no individual or living person can be identified by looking at such data.
  • Unlike personal data, which contains explicit information about a person’s name, age, gender, sexual orientation, biometrics and other genetic details, non-personal data is more likely to be in an anonymised form.
  • The committee has also suggested setting up of a new authority which would be empowered to monitor the use and mining of such non-personal data.

Verifying, please be patient.
