Cyber Crimes Gripping India Hard

The growing incidences of cyber crimes in India are an indicator that India must urgently do something in this regard. The recent cyber law and cyber crimes trends by Perry4Law Techno Legal Base (PTLB) also corroborate this phenomenon.

Meanwhile international community has become serious to tackle cyber crimes and illicit networks. Google and Interpol have decided to fight back terrorism and illicit networks using their technology.

Similarly, Europol would lead a project that would collaborate upon cyber crime intelligence capabilities across the world.  Many African countries are also working on the direction of formulating cyber laws for their respective countries.

India has formulated its cyber law in the year 2000 when it enacted the information technology act 2000 (IT Act 2000). However, with the passage of time it was required to be suitably amended. India failed to achieve this crucial task and is now facing a situation that if not tackled immediately would bring adverse effects to its economy.

In fact leading techno legal experts like Praveen Dalal, managing partner of ICT law firm Perry4Law, believe that cyber law of India should be repealed and a better cyber law must be urgently enacted to tackle the growing menace of cyber crimes and cyber attacks against India.

It is high time for Indian legislature to take notice of this situation and enact suitable laws for India that can take care of cyber crimes, cyber attacks and critical infrastructure protection in India.
