Seven Joint Cyber Coordination Teams (JCCTs) have been constituted to safeguard digital territories of Mewat, Jamtara, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Chandigarh, Vishakhapatnam and Guwahati and prevent cybercrimes.

Armed with cutting-edge technology, “these teams under the ‘Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre’ (I4C) covering the whole country based upon cybercrime hotspots/ areas having multi-jurisdictional issues by on boarding States/UTs to enhance the coordination framework among the Law Enforcement Agencies of the States/UTs”, the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said in a reply in the Lok Sabha.

The Home Ministry said that a series of workshops were held in strategic locations such as Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Vishakhapatnam, Lucknow, Ranchi, and Chandigarh in 2023. Each workshop served as a crucible, forging unity among diverse law enforcement agencies to tackle the ever-evolving landscape of cybercrime.

“The ‘Citizen Financial Cyber Fraud Reporting and Management System’, under I4C, has been launched for immediate reporting of financial frauds and to stop siphoning off funds by the fraudsters. So far, an amount of more than Rs 1,200 crore have been saved in more than 4.7 lakh complaints. A toll-free helpline number ‘1930’ has been operationalised to get assistance in lodging online cyber complaints,” the MHA said.

The Union Home Ministry, in the reply, said that National Cyber Forensic Laboratory (Investigation) in New Delhi trained Investigating Officers (IOs) in grappling with the complexities of cyber investigations. With over 9,000 cases assisted, ranging from mobile forensics to Call Data Record (CDR) analysis, the laboratory emerged as a “bastion of justice in the digital realm”.

“Till date, more than 3.2 lakh SIM cards and 49,000 IMEIs as reported by Police authorities have been blocked by the Government of India. viii. I4C has imparted cyber hygiene training to 6,000 officials of various Ministries/ Departments of Government of India. I4C has imparted cyber hygiene training to more than 23,000 NCC cadets,” the MHA said.

The Ministry also said that the Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) platform, namely ‘CyTrain’ portal has been developed under I4C, for capacity building of police officers/judicial officers through online course on critical aspects of cybercrime investigation, forensics, prosecution etc. along with certification. More than 76,000 police officers from states/UTs have been registered and more than 53,000 certificates have been issued through the portal.
