Cyber terrorism essentially denotes the use of technology in achieving terror agendas. This is one of the most common paths taken for indulging into cyber terrorist activities. The cyber terrorism is a way which not only results in virtual data loss; rather it also creates a strong physical impact. The framing procedure of Indian laws on cyber terrorism has been quite latent. Through this research the researcher will highlight the physical impact which is created by cyber terrorism and how it can be used as a tool for mass destruction. Besides this, the researcher will also discuss the legal framework pertaining to cyber terrorism in India. One thing which is seen in this research is that despite of several direct indications regarding the ill-effects of cyber terrorism, the cyber security system in India is significantly poor.
