As the nation progresses, there are many changes that takes place in the country. With the convergence in technologies, life is getting easier. If we consider a wrist watch which shows us the time is no longer just a strap on our wrist but a lot many facilities such as camera, GPS, music and etc. at one place. If we look at our daily activities, wherever we walk, whether it is any shop, cinema theater, malls, restaurant, petrol station, we don’t need the currency notes to transact, all we need is a plastic with a chip in it, which is our credit or debit card. We even use online transfer to do transactions. We just swipe our card and the transaction is done. The money from one account gets transferred in the account of the shop owner. The question in the mind of the people here is that where is all the money used in online shopping? It might be on some computers, stored somewhere in the world, which we assume is safe and protected we use e-mail for communication by electronically sending messages or important documents, but we don’t know if any person has created fake email in our name and using that particular email for sending dirty messages picture and videos to our relatives and friends. So, with growing technologies, crime against such technologies are also increasing. Thus, our interest in this work is all about the cyber-crimes and e-frauds happening in the reaction of the present Information Technology Act, 2000.
