Cyber Cell – India’s response to Cyber Crime

Cyber-crime cells also known as Cyber Cells are a one-stop-shop for combating and addressing cyber-crime. Cyber-crime is now a criminal offence involving online stalking, online banking or credit card scams, hacking, and the spread of software viruses. Cyber Cell is the response to Cyber Crime.

Cyber Cell Overview: Cyber Cell and their functions

With the rise of mobile phones and the spread of high-speed 3G/4G networks, social interaction, business transactions, learning, and communication have all moved to online platforms. However, this has been accompanied by a simultaneous spurt in cybercrime incidents such as business-email frauds, ransomware, cyberbullying, identity thefts, and social media harassment. Since the technology associated with the Internet, smart devices, and apps is still relatively new and poorly understood, ordinary people are becoming easy targets for cyber criminals’ nefarious schemes.

Cyber-crime cells are a one-stop shop for combating and addressing cyber-crime. Cyber-crime is now a criminal offence involving online stalking, online banking or credit card scams, hacking, and the spread of software viruses. These cybercrime cells are the brainchild of city criminal investigation departments in India, and they have been formed solely to deal with Internet-related illegal activity. The Information Technology Act of 2000 governs computer and internet-related offences, and the Act also punishes them.

How to file a complaint at a Cyber cell

Filing a Complaint on National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal

This platform is a government of India project to make it easier for victims and complainants to register cyber crime grievances online. This website only accepts complaints about cybercrime, with an emphasis on cybercrime against women and children. Law enforcement agencies/police deal with complaints posted on this portal based on the details provided in the protests. It is essential to provide complete and reliable information when filing a complaint to receive prompt attention.

If an emergency or investigate crimes other than cybercrime, please call the local police department. The number for the national police helpline is 100, and the women’s helpline is 181.
