The Indian government is making it mandatory for a tech company like Google, Facebook, and Amazon, to share the public data of users. The Ministry of Electronics and IT (MeitY) is continuously working on issuing new rules under the IT Act that will require tech giants to share freely available data or the public information that they assemble in the course of their operations, including traffic, etc.
