Cybercrime in India rising rapidly, shows cyber cell statistics

The number of cybercrime complaints has seen a rise by 350% from 2013 and by over 44% from 2016, according to cyber cell statistics, reports The Times of India on November 14. Most crimes are related to online banking, emphasising why policymakers are concerned about digital security as the government pushes for a more cashless economy and card-based or wallet-based transactions. As many as 3,474 cybercrime complaints have been registered in the past 10 months till October 2017. A total of 2,402 such complaints were registered last year and 760 in 2013.

The number of online banking fraud-related complaints in Gurgaon has increased nearly nine times in the last five years. The number jumped from 248 in 2013 to 2,095 this year (till October). While online banking and credit card fraud tops the list, social networking-related crime, email hacking, online sexual harassment or pornography, lottery fraud, data-theft and job-related fraud are also frequent. Social networking-related complaints have doubled from 2016. The number of complaints related to Facebook was 151 in 2016, and is 316 this year (till October). The number of complaints related to Twitter was just four last year. This year, the number is three times more at 12 complaints.
