The cyber cell of the ministry of home affairs has rolled out a new program. In this program, the citizens can register themselves as volunteers to flag and report to the government about the legal and unlawful contents. This content includes rape, child pornography, terrorism, and anti-national content or activities. This program is to be piloted initially in Jammu & Kashmir and Tripura on a trail. The responses and reporting frequency to this project will help to proceed with deciding if this can be calibrated further.
Under this project, the ministry of home affairs Indian cyber crime coordination center will act as a nodal point. The volunteers can participate by registering themselves with their respective states or union territories.
