Over the years, legal intervention towards the protection of personal data has gained momentum due to the increased access of confidential data being made easily available to global business corporations. On this line, the General Data Protection Regulation has been passed by the European Union. This regulation now allows all persons inside the EU the right to know how their data is being used and controlled globally. With a similar intention, after the holding of right to privacy as a fundamental right, India has envisioned the Personal Data Protection Bill. Although this bill has some similarity to the GDPR, this paper will analyse whether this bill can truly be a revolutionary regulation in the area of personal data or does it weaken the current status of right to privacy.
