Bhopal: Schools should observe the ‘Cyber Jaagrookta (Awareness) Diwas’ on the first Wednesday of every month but it was never implemented due to which school students in Bhopal have either little or no information about cyber security or cyber hygiene.CBSE has been releasing scircular regarding cyber Jagrookta Diwas. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), Govt. of India launched National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal (NCRP) to facilitate the online reporting of cyber-crime incidents. MHA also rolled out the Citizen Financial Cyber Fraud Reporting & Management System (CFCFRMS), as a part of the NCRP for immediate reporting of financial frauds and for stopping the siphoning off of funds by fraudsters.One of the key actions for preventing cyber-crimes is to generate sustained awareness among the public on ‘cyber hygiene’. The Ministry of Home Affairs, Govt. of India requested to observe the ‘Cyber Jaagrookta (Awareness) Diwas’ on the first Wednesday of every month in all educational institutions. However, it was never implemented in schools of the state capital.Such was the situation that neither teachers nor parents and not even students have any clue about such awareness in the society.“I have never heard of any such day being observed in my son’s school. This is a great initiative that should be implemented in schools immediately. It can help several students who intentionally or unintentionally commit crime on social media and other internet facilities,” said Akhil Gupta, father of a class 7 student.Students said that they learn about cyber law and cyber crimes only when such a chapter is given in the computer books. “We have a chapter about how to be safe while using the internet. There were no such cyber awareness drives or camps in the schools,” said Sarthak Kumar, a class 7 student.Even teachers admitted that there was no such awareness drive about cyber security and cyber- crimes. “Is there any specific day fixed by CBSE on cyber awareness? I will search about it,” said a school teacher without quoting her name.National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal (https://www.cybercrime.gov.in) has already been launched and a toll-free helpline number to assist the citizens for registration of complaints pertaining to cyber- crimes on the portal has also been made available to the public.
