Assocham and ISPAI, among others, are not satisifed with some of the changes in the proposed IT Act 2005.

“The new Act will scare away foreign clients from Indian BPOs as they will not be held liable for any data theft/breach. The deletion of section 66, which deals with hacking will abet cyber crimes in India. We must take great caution as laws cannot be amended every now and then” Mr Duggal added.

Nasscom, which has been the driving force behind these changes, apparently thinks otherwise.
