In order to deal with tech-based issues, National Response Center for Cyber Crime (NR3C), is a newly introduced mandate of the FIA. It’s really important for us to become responsible citizens and give details to the FIA Cyber Crime Wing for fake profiles, online terrorism or any objectionable content. According to NR3C:
“Any activity commissioned via computer, digital devices and networks used in the cyber realm, and is facilitated through the internet medium. It can include the distant theft of information belonging to an individual, government or corporate sector through criminal tress-passing into unauthorized remote systems around the world. It includes from stealing millions of rupees from online bank to harassing and stalking cyber users.”
