Maharashtra to set up five more cyber cells

5 More Cyber-Cells In Maharashtra (Nashik, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Pune & Kolhapur)
 

In a bid to curb cyber crime, the Maharashtra government on Saturday announced that it would set up five more cyber cells in the state. According to Satej Patil  minister of state for home "The cyber cells will be set up in Nashik, Nagpur, Aurangabad, Pune and Kolhapur mainly to curb cyber crimes like data theft and hacking," Maharashtra reported an increase of 151% in cyber crime, with cases rising from 161 in 2009 to 246 in 2010. Mumbai alone reported 49 cases as against 39 in 2009. According to the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) report ‘Crime in India for the year 2010’, the city registered 58 cases related to cyber crime under the IT Act, 2000, in 2010, as against eight in 2009.
Pune is closely followed by Hyderabad at second position with 56 cases, Bangalore and Mumbai are at the third position with 49 cases each
A senior officer attached with the city police told DNA, “Presently, Bangalore and Hyderabad, the two top IT hubs in the country, have such specialised police station. The Mumbai police also opened a station at Bandra-Kurla complex in suburban Bandra on May 2009,” Cyber crime victims have to virtually run from pillar to post to lodge complaints.
Late in 2011 we have seen Kolkata has set up a new cyber-lab to prevent or fight against cyber crime, now Maharashtra Govt. has planned to setup 5 new cyber cells. So we must have to say slowly but steadily Indian Govt is plaining to enhance cyber-security :P
