How to report cyber crime in India

The National Cyber Crime Portal portal is divided into two sections: one for reporting crimes against women and children, and another for reporting general cybercrime, such as phishing, ransomware, and denial-of-service attacks.

Victims of cyber-attacks and cybercrime can use the tool to file anonymous reports or provide information so that the case can be tracked online.

Authorities are also concerned that victims of online sexual and non-sexual abuse, such as harassment, may not report their crimes to the authorities.
