In response to question by Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on whether the government intends to republish the guidelines for public consultations, the minister said other policies such as the National Data Governance Policy announced in the Budget 2023, with reference to which consistency was to be ensured, are not yet in place. “Therefore, no view has been taken regarding republishing of the said guidelines for public consultations,” he said.
