The government sought feedback from the people on the Telecommunication Bill yesterday, after which on Friday Communications Minister Ashwini Vaishnaw said that the new bill will replace many old bills. At the same time, Digital Data Protection Act will also be brought to protect the interests of consumers.

The Union Minister said that the government will present a new draft of the Data Protection Bill in the next few days. Vaishnaw said at the third edition of the Global Fintech Fest that the suggestions received from various stakeholders have been considered while preparing the bill. He said it is a matter of few days when the bill will be uploaded for consultation.

Vaishnaw said that the primary source for cyber fraud is telephone or mobile. The government is moving in the direction for its avoidance. He said that people are getting cyber fraud by using technology. The Prime Minister has said that the consumer should get security and this is the first priority of the government.

According to the Union Minister, if anyone is getting any call from anywhere, then he will know by whom the call is. For this it is necessary to have KYC. When a call comes from different platforms, then it should be known whether it is under regulation or not. There have been places in the country which have become centers of fraud, with the new rules it will be easy to break this chain.
