National Security Advisor (NSA) Ajit Doval said that India had witnessed an increase in cyber crimes by almost 500% due to the increased dependency on digital payment platforms.

Doval said the same on Saturday during a two-day virtual conference on Cyber Security at the COCONXIII-2020, which was a data privacy and hacking conference hosted by the Kerala Police and the Society for the Policing of Cyberspace and Information Security Research Association.


Doval assured that the government would come up with the National Cyber Security Strategy 2020 that assures safe and trusted cyberspace. He warned people by saying they should maintain cyber hygiene, secure personal gadgets and report cybercrime and behave responsibly.

Doval said that despite being able to manage safety, there have been instances where cyberspace has been under threat. He said the country had witnessed a spike in cyber crimes by 500% due to limited awareness and poor cyber hygiene.

Nagpur railway station was flanked by passengers queuing up for refund of their booked tickets as several trains got cancelled, recently.

Nagpur railway station was flanked by passengers queuing up for refund of their booked tickets as the Central Railway and South East Central Railway have cancelled several trains, recently. Closure of several ticket counters at the east and west side of the station has added to the woes of the passengers.

The paucity of functioning tickets counters at the Nagpur railway station has put travellers in a fix as festivals like Durga Puja, Dussehra, Diwali and Christmas are around the corner. Even as government encourages people to book tickets online in order to avoid rush, a huge section of people, especially senior citizens, still rely on window ticket bookings.
