Pilot Project By Government
The Union Ministry of Home Affairs has started a pilot project in November last year with the cyber portal HTTPS: //cybercrime.gov.i/ and cyber cell of Delhi Police for victims of cheating by OTP, link, and other methods. Delhi has been linked first on this Indian cyber crime coordination platform. After this Rajasthan has been added. Similarly, other states of the country will be made part of this project. About 55 banks, e-wallets, e-commerce sites, payment gateways, and other institutions are associated with the cyber cell.
Frauds are also happening faster than banking services online in India. But due to lack of information, people are not able to complain about the fraud that happened to them on time and at the right place. To prevent online fraud and save people’s earnings, the Home Ministry and the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police have joined hands. The Home Ministry and the Cyber Cell of Delhi Police have launched a helpline number on which you can immediately complain.
About 55 banks, e-wallets, e-commerce sites, payment gateways, and other institutions have an interconnected platform called ‘Citizen Financial Cyber Fraud Reporting System’. Through this platform, victims of online financial fraud can be saved in a very short time. Through this helpline, we have so far saved 3 lakh 13 thousand rupees for 21 people.
