Wait for the Final Nod Likely to Get Over
The amendment bill for IT Act 2000, which has been pending for almost two years now, is expected to see the light of the day this month. The bill is likely to be taken up in the ongoing session of the Parliament, said Gulshan Rai, director-general in the Union Communications and Information Technology Ministry.
Based on the amendment recommendation, the Government of India will revise the Information Technology Act, 2000. Making the Act more encompassing in nature, the amendments will also help the administrators to effectively deal with online data security, data privacy, identity theft, cyber-terrorism, child pornography, spam, phishing, and other online frauds.
“For the first time, we have tried to define cyber terrorism, child pornography and various online frauds. The amended legal framework will be in line with all the provisions of the European Cyber Convention. Once in place, the new legal framework would address emerging issues in cyberspace,” said he.
The winter session of the parliament is resuming this week after getting adjourned on October 24.
