India is to finally get a data privacy watchdog to oversee the country's IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) offshore outsourcing industry and to address international concerns about the security of customer records and data.

India does not have any data protection law equivalent to that in the United Kingdom but has been under increasing international pressure to address this in recent years due to a spate of high-profile security breaches.
