Cyber harassment law to come in by Telangana Government, NALSAR

With the changing times and technologies, Telangana is promoting IT and IT-related services. Though there are a lot of opportunities, they come with challenges and one of the challenges is cyber harassment, cyber-security issues

To curb cyber harassment and bullying among other crimes, the Telangana Government in consultation with NALSAR University is working to bring out legislation, TRS MLC K Kavitha said on Monday. Speaking at an interactive session, the TRS leader said she has a vision to see women in rural Telangana being able to operate laptops through digital empowerment programmes of the state government.

“Currently, the Telangana Government is working with NALSAR University to come up with a law which addresses particularly cyber harassment and issues that women face. It takes care of other things like crimes, frauds, etc. But cyber harassment is the major issue,” she said when asked about the state government’s initiatives on cyber-crimes against women.

A separate cyber law would ensure quicker action by law enforcement authorities and subsequent trial of the cases, said Kavitha, who is also the daughter of the Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao.

“With the changing times and technologies, Telangana is promoting IT and IT-related services. Though there are a lot of opportunities, they come with challenges and one of the challenges is cyber harassment, cyber-security issues,” she further said.

To understand and address gender-related issues, the country needs more women politicians and leaders, Kavitha said.

As the dispensation believes in women empowerment, the most of the developmental and welfare programmes of the state government would always prefer female beneficiaries to men, she added.

She opined that internet penetration among women in the country needs to go up from the existing 35 per cent to digitally empower them.

According to her, Telangana, especially Hyderabad city, accepts and encourages womenfolk to go out for employment and also work from home.
