The minister said the migration to the new regime should not lead to any disruption in the businesses.
“We may give a certain amount of time for platforms to migrate, to have consent managers, redesign their consent form, make sure data processing is aligned to the act…we will not give them 2 years. It will be some number, six months or something like that so that transition is orderly,” Chandrasekhar said.
He said there will be enough time given so that people become aware of their rights, and MSME should also get some time to adjust to the rules.
“We are ready with notification for DPB,” Chandrasekhar said.
