It said that in order to ensure sufficient choices to the users of digital services, granularities in the consent mechanism should be built-in by the service providers. Trai has suggested that all entities in the digital ecosystem including telecom operators should transparently disclose the information about the privacy breaches on their websites along with the actions taken for mitigation, and preventing such breaches in future.
