The pandemic has posed huge challenges in front of us. Among all these, one of the major challenges that we encounter regularly is Cyber Fraud. It could be linked to the fake calls from unidentified callers asking for personal details or misusing the names of Government and Corporate organizations to offer job opportunities online.
In view of such unethical activities, the Central government has reinforced its commitment to provide a safe and secure digital payments ecosystem to the citizens. Recently, the Union Home Ministry has operationalised the national Helpline 155260 and Reporting Platform for preventing financial loss due to cyber fraud.
Let’s get to know more about it.
The National Helpline and Reporting Platform provide a mechanism for persons cheated in cyber frauds to report such cases to prevent loss of their hard-earned money. The Helpline was launched this year in April and is currently being utilized along with 155260 by seven States and Union Territories. Till now, it has covered 35 percent of the country’s population. To prevent the flow of money siphoned off by fraudsters, the rollout process of the Helpline is underway in the other States for pan-national coverage.
The associated platform of the Helpline, Citizen Financial Cyber Fraud Reporting and Management System has been developed in-house by the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre to integrate Law Enforcement Agencies, Banks and Financial Intermediaries.
