Cyber Terrorism And Its Solutions In India

The concept of Cyber Terrorism in India was first introduced and advocated in the year 2002 by Praveen Dalal, the leading Techno-Legal Expert of India and Managing Partner of Perry4Law.

However, the GOI woke up very late in the year 2008 when a single provision was incorporated in the Information Technology Amendment Act 2008 (IT Act 2008) on the basis of suggestions of Praveen Dalal.

Though the provision seems to be a good beginning yet there is still a long gap to cover as a single provision cannot be considered to be enough to address the menace of cyber terrorism in India.

It would be a good idea if the GOI take a serious note of the existing cyber law of India and come up with good and effective amendments.

In this wonderful article, Praveen Dalal has suggested both the problems of and solutions to growing problems of cyber terrorism in India. The same can be utilised by GOI once more to provide a robust and effective cyber terrorism law in India.
