  35. 35. As someone rightly said that “bytes are replacing bullets in the crime world”. The growth of cyber crime in India, as all over the world, is on the rise and to curb its scope and complexity is the pertinent need today. India’s profile and wealth have risen enormously in the world due to the constructive use of information technology. At the same time, India ranks fourth in the world for cyber crime. Even under the IT Act, investigations in India are not easy. This is mainly due to the lack of what is called “cyber forensics.” We know that forensic evidence is important in normal criminal investigations. But the collection and presentation of electronic evidence to prove cyber crimes have posed a challenge to investigation and prosecution agencies and the judiciary. To sum up, India needs a good combination of laws and technology, in harmony with the laws of other countries and keeping in mind common security standards. In the era of e-governance and e-commerce, a lack of common security standards can create havoc for global trade as well as military matters. 36
