Digital Intelligence Platform launched to curb cybercrime & financial fraud

Minister of communications, railway, and electronics & information technology Ashwini Vaishnaw launched the department of telecommunications’ Digital Intelligence Platform (DIP) for coordination among the stakeholders to curb misuse of telecom resources in cyber-crime and financial frauds.  ‘Chakshu (चक्षु)’ facility on Sanchar Saathi portal, a pioneering initiative empowering citizens to proactively report suspected fraud communication, was also unveiled on this occasion.

The minister said the government has been persistently making efforts to check cyberfrauds under the Secure India project, at three levels – national, organisational and individual. He said, the department of telecommunication has taken many initiatives to spread awareness so that citizens can make use of such tools for addressing their grievances as well as protect themselves from cyber frauds. The existing Sanchar Saathi portal in this regard has helped successfully tackle such attacks. Together with the two newly launched portals – DIP and Chakshu, these tools will further appreciably enhance the capacity and ability to check any kind of cyber security threat.

DIP is a secure and integrated platform for real-time intelligence sharing, information exchange and coordination among the stakeholders i.e. Telecom Service Providers (TSPs), law enforcement agencies (LEAs), banks and financial institutions (FIs), social media platforms, identity document issuing authorities and so on. The portal also contains information regarding the cases detected as misuse of telecom resources. The shared information could be useful to the stakeholders in their respective domains.

Chakshu facilitates citizens to report suspected fraud communication received over call, SMS or WhatsApp with the intention of defrauding like KYC expiry or update of bank account/ payment wallet/SIM/gas connection/electricity connection, sextortion, impersonation as government officials/relatives for sending money, disconnection of all mobile numbers by the department of telecommunications and so on.
