Naavi.org started its mission of "Building Cyber Law Awareness" in the middle of
1998 with the draft of E-Commerce Act 1998 then made available on line by the
Ministry of Information Technology.

Naavi also undertook publishing of books "Cyber Laws for Every Netizen in India"
and an E-Book "Cyber Laws in India..ITA-2000 and Beyond" as well as
"CyLawCom-Corporate Mantra for the Digital Era".
Naavi also initiated a "Karnataka Cyber Law Awareness Movement" which included
the publication of the first book on the subject of Cyber Laws in a
regional language, "Antarjaala AparaadhagaLu" in Kannada to ensure the spread of
Cyber Law Awareness amongst Cyber Cafe owners in Karnataka and conducting a
series of lectures in Law Colleges in different parts of Karnataka. Several
other sub-projects in this grand movement of Cyber Law Awareness to make
Karnataka the most Cyber Law Aware State in India are still in progress.

different NITs under a project of NPIU. A third project which has taken shape is
the commencement of the activities of the
"International Institute of IT Law" in Bangalore.

I take this opportunity to invite suggestions from the members of public on how
the "Mission-Cyber Law Awareness" can be pushed further.
I also take this opportunity to invite like minded individuals and business
units who are interested in pursuing commercial and academic projects in Cyber
Law, Cyber Security, Cyber Forensics as well as IT enabled services in the field
of Cyber Law and Cyber Security. Some of these projects have global
opportunities to be harnessed.
I am also interested in promoting the concept of Voluntary compliance of Cyber
Law through the concept of "CyLawCom" which
also requires a suitable partner for realizing the global ambitions set forth.
