ASCL Student Moves High Court to Ensure Quick Redressal of Cyber Grievances

A student of Asian School of Cyber Laws has moved the Mumbai High Court in a bid to ensure that the provisions of the Information Technology Act, 2000 (IT Act) are implemented post haste.

Although the IT Act has been in effect since October, 2000, the Government has appointed neither the Adjudicating Officers nor the Cyber Appellate Tribunal.

As per section 46 of the IT Act, an adjudicating officer is required to be appointed by the Central Government to adjudicate contraventions under Chapter IX of the Information Technology Act, 2000. Moreover, as per section 57 of the Act, appeals against the orders of the adjudicating officers are to be made before the Cyber Appellate Tribunal.

In the absence of these authorities, victims of various cyber crimes, covered by Chapter IX, have no remedy, as the jurisdiction of the Civil Courts has been debarred in such matters.

Nupur Jain, a student of the Diploma in Information Technology Law course conducted by the Asian School of Cyber Laws has recently filed a Public Interest Litigation in the Bombay High Court at Mumbai, India in this regard.

The bench comprising of Hon'ble Chief Justice A.P.Shah and Hon'ble Justice Ranjana Desai, has asked the Union Government to file an affidavit in the matter within two weeks.
