The Indian Telecom Draft Bill 2022 will replace the existing Indian Telegraph Act 1885, Wireless Telegraph Act and Telegraph Wires Act
Modi government is making big preparations to stop banking and cyber fraud. Soon, strict rules will be made for this by changing the law. In this regard, Information and Broadcasting Minister Ashwini Vaishnav said that there will be many big provisions in the Telecommunication Bill 2022, which will help protect people from fraud. The Union Minister said that when someone receives a fraud call, then the identity of the caller is not known. But in the coming time there will be such a provision, so that the callers will know about the caller.
Under KYC i.e. Know Your Customer system, everyone has to give their account information to the service provider. This KYC process is being strengthened. If anyone gives false or misleading information about himself to the service provider, then legal action will be taken against him.
There are many parts of the country where cyber and banking fraud is being reported a lot. The central government is serious about controlling this. The provisions in this new bill will help in preventing banking fraud and cyber crime. Vaishnav said that the provision of strict action against the accused will be made in the new bill if caught in fraud.
Apart from this, the OTT platform will also be subject to the regulator. The discussion on this whole matter is going on at the moment. The Indian Telecom Draft Bill 2022 will replace the existing Indian Telegraph Act 1885, Wireless Telegraph Act and Telegraph Wires Act. Now suggestions have been sought from the people on this, in the coming days this new bill will be introduced in both the houses of Parliament. PLC/GT
