NITI Aayog's study of privacy laws promulgated by various countries
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Bill, if made law, will be India's first exclusive statute providing protection to online users' personal data from breach by state AND non-state players.
One of the primary guiding factors for the committee would be the exhaustive report submitted in October 2012 by a group of experts on privacy led by former Delhi High Court Chief Justice A.P.

Both the government and the court have agreed that this would be the "conceptual foundation for legislation protecting privacy" in the form of the new Data Protection Bill.
