Minister of State for Home Affairs (MHA) has clarified that it had operationalized the National Cyber Crime Reporting Portal on 30th August, 2019 to provide a centralized mechanism to the citizens for online reporting of all types of cyber crime incidents, with a special focus on cyber crimes against women and children.
However, incidents reported on this portal, their conversion into FIRs and subsequent action thereon are handled by the State/UT law enforcement agency concerned as per the provisions of the law.
As per the data maintained, since its inception 317439 cyber crime incidents and 5771 FIRs have been registered up to 28th February, 2021 in the country.
