The department of electronics and information technology (DeitY) will set up a National Cyber Coordination Center (NCCC) by March this year in order to counter cyber threats to the rapidly increasing users of IT and telecom devices and to ensure their financial and personal details are not misused.

“The mobile phones and smartphones are hacked for transfer of money illegally…countering this will be among the top projects of NCCC,” a DeitY source told HT.

The NCCC will work closely with the Economic Offences Wing (EoW) in Central Bureau of Investigation to tap cases of illegal online money transfer. This is done by hacking different accounts using cloned SIMs. It will also work with the legal departments in security agencies to ensure genuine consumers are protected.

“It is important since current legislation and law for e-commerce using mobile or computer devices are not consumer friendly. In case of misuse, the onus to prove not guilty is on the user of the phone or a computer device,” said Pavan Duggal, a Cyberlaw expert.

The NCCC will coordinate with the National Disaster Management Authority and the Indian Metrological Department to execute the five-year project worth Rs. 1,305 crore.
