Wikimedia flags concerns over India's new data protection bill

Dec 27, 2019 19:09 IST

Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit group that runs Wikipedia, has expressed concerns over proposed changes to Indian IT intermediary rules. In a letter to IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, it flagged worries around automated filtering of content, setting up of a local entity and traceability of content, proposed under the new data protection law. Wikimedia added that the bill’s requirements won’t allow them to provide free access to knowledge in India and that it will pose as “a serious threat to freedom of expression’.
