Views: 170

The Indian parliament panel has criticised the government for not preparing a new set of laws on cyber crime and instead taking a “short cut route” of making changes in the existing norms.

According to the Standing Committee on Information Technology, the law pertaining to IT should be self-containing and easily comprehensible to the global village community. The Committee observed that the term 'cyber terrorism' has not been defined anywhere in the IT Act, 2000 or in the proposed amendments. Similarly, 'child pornography' has also not been mentioned anywhere in the section on pornography.
