The management of personal data in the digital world raises concerns regarding privacy and security of information. Privacy can be defined as access of an individual, group, or organisation to information. Data privacy is one of the most critical challenges faced by the contemporary modern society. While it is an assumption that privacy can solve the problems we face in the digital world, however, in reality, privacy comes with its own set of issues. The primary aim of this paper is to qualitatively analyse the concerns around privacy. This research explains how data protection laws can be difficult to implement and can be a threat to privacy itself. The paper explores the intersections between privacy and social order and examines how production, control, and management of privacy are unequally distributed. As global negotiations today revolve around the transfer and security of data, the Indian Government has proposed the Personal Data Protection (PDP) Bill, 2019. This paper aims to unravel these issues and look at the approach of the Indian parliament in solving them through the PDP Bill.
