Internet has played the role of a catalyst in the development of information and technology worldwide. Its impact was greatly felt in India as well. Another development was the Technological Convergence which has enabled the use of integrated services over the same network, such as, news, telephony, television or personal computing. With the growth of Cyberspace need was felt to have a legal framework for evolving a regulated code of conduct for online activities in the electronic medium. The enactment of the Information Technology Act, 2000 was a major step towards the formulation of Cyber Law in India. The Information Technology Act, 2000 has amended certain Acts, namely, The Indian Penal Code, 1860, The Indian Evidence Act, 1872, The Bankerís Book Evidence Act, 1891 and The Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 to deal with the emerging cyber crimes. Certain acts in the cyber space have been made punishable under the Information Technology (IT) Act, 2000. Electronic records have been given legal recognition under the Act. By virtue of the amendments in the Indian Penal Code, several offences relating to cyber space can be registered under the appropriate sections of the Indian Penal Code.
