In early 2011, the Government of India's Ministry of Communications & Information Technology adopted new privacy regulations, known as the Information Technology (Reasonable Security Practices and Procedures and Sensitive Personal Data or Information) Rules, 2011 (the "Rules"). These Rules impose wide-ranging obligations on any "body corporate" (company) that "collects, receives, possesses, stores, deals or handles" personal information. There are now greater restrictions on data collection and processing. At the point of collection of any personal data, individuals must be made aware of:

A. The date that their data is being collected;

B. Their right to review all data collected before it is passed on to its intended recipients;

C. The contact details of both the agency collecting the data and the agency that will retain the data; or

D. The fact that all data is no longer subject to a restriction on any processing for secondary purposes.
