Information Technology Amendment Act 2008: Notified Or Not

There are lots of news that the Information Technology Amendment Act 2008 (IT Act 2008) has been notified. The proposed notification seems to be a rumour than reality. The IT Act 2008 must be notified in official gazette by the Central Government u/s 1(2) of the IT Act 2008.

There is no information whatsoever that it has been notified except some news reports. None of these reports have provided either the text of the notification or the link to the website wherein that notification has been published. Even the notification number is missing.

On the other hand there are clear hints from the Law Minister Mr. Molly that the Information Technology Act 2000 and IT Act 2008 would be further amended.

For reliable and up to date information, keep a check upon the Cyber Law In India resource. More details about the present notification fiasco would be published there very soon.
