A long awaited measure to make filing of Cyber Crime Complaints easy has now been announced by the Central Government.
According to the news reports emerging, Government of India is setting up a central portal where such a complaint can be filed either by a victim or any good samaritan. (refer here)
The complaint will be registered and numbered and the jurisdictional police station would be alerted. The status of the complaint gets updated at appropriate levels so that it can be followed up.
This is a simple provision that was recommended long time back and is now seeing the light of the day. An earlier attempt was made in some states including Karnataka to introduce such a system but it remained on paper since the police establishment did not support the move. Hopefully this time it is a reality.
Further details are awaited.
