Legal Counsel

At DigiSahamati Foundation (Sahamati) we believe that by creating an environment for our employees to personally and professionally thrive, we will have a maximum impact on our missions to achieve our vision.

Sahamati is a not-for-profit company incorporated under Section 8 of the Companies Act. Sahamati is an industry alliance to promote the Account Aggregator Ecosystem.

Data is a key part of the way our economy works. Data sharing is not new. But data sharing with the user’s consent is new. Various business/enterprises collect data under various pretexts. There is little or no accountability in the use of the data.

Account Aggregators are intermediaries whose objective is to manage the Consent of the users and act as data access fiduciaries. Sahamati is on a mission to transform people’s data wealth to economic wealth, a first of its kind in the world.

The Account Aggregator is data agnostic. Sahamati will initially focus on the financial services world but intends to then work in other sectors including healthcare and education.
