Cyber crime is becoming a wide-spread epidemic today. Though there is very little awareness about it, it is the one which requires the most attention. Cybercrime increases over 60% every year. The thought itself should send shudders down the spine
India is no exception to cyber crime. The Indian government has been taking various initiatives and has become quite stringent about securing the cyber space of the country. From the IT Act 2000 to National Cyber Security Policy, India is facing the cyber crime challenge head-on.
The cyber law in India “provides legal recognition to electronic documents and a framework to support e-filing and e-commerce transactions and also provides a legal framework to mitigate, check cyber crimes.” (Ministry of Communications & IT)
In accordance with the provision contained under Section 48(1) of the IT Act 2000, the Cyber Regulations Appellate Tribunal (CRAT) has been established in October 2006. The Cyber Regulations Appellate Tribunal after the amendment of the IT Act in the year 2008 (which came into effect on 27.10.2009) is known as the Cyber Appellate Tribunal (CAT).
