Home Ministry launched Cyber Crime Prevention against Women & Children portal (www.cybercrime.gov.in): Details, Aim, Purpose, Highlights

Union Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has launched a Cyber Crime Prevention against Women and Children (CCPWC) portal (www.cybercrime.gov.in).

The Cyber Crime Prevention against Women and Children (CCPWC) portal was launched by Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on 20th September 2018, in New Delhi.

The CCPWC portal aims to check objectionable online content. It will also allow citizens to lodge complaints on objectionable online content related to child pornography, child sexual abuse material and sexually explicit material such as rape and gang rape.

The CCPWC portal will enable citizens to report complainants in without disclosing their identity. This will help victims, complainants and also help civil society organizations and responsible citizens to anonymously report complaints pertaining to objectionable online content involving women and children.

The CCPWC portal will also allow complainants to upload objectionable content and URL to assist in the investigation by State Police.

The complaints registered through this CCPWC portal will be handled by police authorities of respective State/UTs. It also has other features such as report and track option allowing victim or complainant to track his/her report using his/her mobile number.

National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) will proactively identify such objectionable content on receiving complainants and take up with intermediaries for its removal. For this NCRB has already been notified as Central Government nodal agency to issue notices under Section 79(3)b of Information Technology (IT) Act.
