Financial Artifice (Investigation, Prosecution, Accretion and Restoration of property) Bill, 2001
Further the Cyberbanking Artifice (Investigation, Prosecution, Accretion and Restoration of property) Bill, 2001 was alien in Parliament to barrier the annoyance of Coffer Fraud. The Act was to prohibit, control, investigate cyberbanking frauds; balance and restore backdrop accountable to such fraud; arraign for causing cyberbanking artifice and affairs affiliated therewith or accidental thereto.
Under the said act the appellation Cyberbanking Artifice has been authentic as under:
Section 512 – Cyberbanking Fraud

The Indian Cyberbanking Industry has undergone amazing advance back nationalization of 14 banks in the year 1969. There has an about eight times access in the coffer branches from about 8000 during 1969 to mote than 60,000 acceptance to 289 bartering banks, of which 66 banks are in clandestine sector.
It was the aftereffect of two alternating Committees on Computerization (Rangarajan Committee) that set the accent for computerization in India. While the aboriginal board drew the dejected book in 1983-84 for the mechanization and computerization in cyberbanking industry, the additional board set up in 1989 paved the way for chip use of telecommunications and computers for applying technogical breakthroughs in cyberbanking sector.
However, with the advance of cyberbanking and banks, frauds acquire been on a connected increase. It could be a accustomed aftereffect to access in the bulk of barter who are application banks these days. In the year 2000 abandoned we acquire absent Rs 673 crores in as abounding as 3,072 bulk of artifice cases. These are abandoned appear figures. Though, this is 0.075% of Rs 8,96,696 crores of absolute deposits and 0.15% of Rs 4,44,125 crores of loans & advances, there are any numbers of cases that are not reported.

An Expert Board on Coffer Frauds (Chairman: Dr.N.L.Mitra) submitted its Report to RBI in September 2001. The Board advised and appropriate both the antitoxin and alleviative aspects of coffer frauds.
The important recommendations of the Board include:
o A charge for including cyberbanking artifice as a bent offence;

Thus it can be assured that afterward measures should necessarily be adopted by the Ministry of Finance in adjustment to abate cases of Fraud.
o There acquire to be a Adapted Court to try cyberbanking artifice cases of austere nature.
o The law should accommodate abstracted structural and accretion procedure. Every coffer acquire to acquire a calm enquiry administrator to enquire about the civilian ambit of fraud.
o A artifice involving an bulk of ten crore of rupees and aloft may be advised austere and be approved in the Adapted Court.
The Twenty-ninth Report of the Law Bureau had dealt some categories of crimes one of which is “offences affected to anticipate and arrest the bread-and-butter development of the country and endanger its bread-and-butter health.” Offences apropos to Cyberbanking Artifice will abatement beneath this category. The a lot of important affection of such offences is that commonly they do not absorb an abandoned absolute victim. They are amiss because they abuse the accomplished society. It is bright that money circuitous in Coffer belongs to public. They drop there accomplished life’ aegis in Banks and in case of Dacoity or Robbery in banks the accessible will be al lost. Thus it is important that acceptable efforts should be taken in this regard.
There exists a new affectionate of blackmail in cyber world. Writers are apropos it as “Salami Attack” beneath this a adapted software is acclimated for appointment the bulk from the annual of the individual. Hence the culprits of such crimes should be begin bound and should be accustomed austere punishment. Moreover there is claim of added bulk of IT professionals who will advice in award a band-aid adjoin all these aegis threats.
