AKRAMA SAKRAMA – A NEWS REPORT

 ನಗರ ಮತ್ತು ಪಟ್ಟಣ ಪ್ರದೇಶಗಳ ಅಕ್ರಮಸಕ್ರಮ ಯೋಜನೆಗೆ ಸುಪ್ರೀಂಕೋರ್ಟ್ತಡೆಯಾಜ್ಞೆ ನೀಡಿರುವುದರಿಂದ  ಸರ್ಕಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಹಿನ್ನಡೆಯಾಗಿದೆ.

ಸುಪ್ರೀಂ ಕೋರ್ಟ್ ಆದೇಶದಂತೆ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಕಾನೂನು ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳನ್ನು ಬಗೆಹರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಯೋಜನೆ ಜಾರಿಗೊಳಿಸಲು ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ಮೂರು ವರ್ಷ ಸಮಯ ಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತದೆ .  ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಅಕ್ರಮಸಕ್ರಮ ಅನುಷ್ಠಾನ ಗೊಳಿಸಲು ಸರ್ಕಾರಕ್ಕೆ ಸಾಧ್ಯವಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಕಾನೂನು ತಜ್ಞರು ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯ ಪಟ್ಟಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಸುಪ್ರೀಂಕೋರ್ಟ್ ನೀಡರುವ ಆದೇಶ ಪ್ರತಿ ಇನ್ನೂ ನಮ್ಮ ಕೈಸೇರಿಲ್ಲ, ಆದೇಶ ಪ್ರತಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಕೈಗೆ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿದ ಕೂಡಲೇ ಕಾನೂನು ತಜ್ಞರ ಜೊತೆ ಸಮಾಲೋಚಿಸಿ ಮುಂದಿನ ಕ್ರಮ ಕೈಗೊಳ್ಳಲಾಗುವುದು ಎಂದು ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಆಯುಕ್ತ ಮಂಜುನಾಥ್ ಪ್ರಸಾದ್ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ  ಇದು ಶೀಘ್ರವೇ ಬಗೆ ಹರಿಯುವ ಕಾರ್ಯವಲ್ಲ ಎಂಬುದು ಕಾನೂನು ತಜ್ಞರ ಅಭಿಪ್ರಾಯವಾಗಿದೆ.

ಸದ್ಯ ವಿಷಯ ಸುಪ್ರಿಂ ಕೋರ್ಟ್ ನಲ್ಲಿದೆ, ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಕನಿಷ್ಠ ಪಕ್ಷ ಮೂರು ವರ್ಷವಾದರೂ (3 YEARS) ಸಮಯ ಹಿಡಿಯುತ್ತದೆ. ಅಕ್ರಮ ಸಕ್ರಮ ವಿಚಾರವಾಗಿ ತೀರ್ಪು ನೀಡಲು ಹೈಕೋರ್ಟ್ ಹಿಂದೆ 10 ವರ್ಷಗಳ ಕಾಲ ಸಮಯ ತೆಗೆದು ಕೊಂಡಿತ್ತು ಎಂದು ಹೈಕೋರ್ಟ್ ವಕೀಲರೊಬ್ಬರು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ಆದರೆ ಯಾವುದೇ ಸಮಯದಲ್ಲಾದರೂ ಸುಪ್ರೀಂಕೋರ್ಟ್ ವಿಷಯ ಸಂಬಂಧ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳನ್ನು ಬಗೆಹರಿಸಿ ಸರ್ಕಾರ ಹಾಗೂ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಗೆ ರಿಲೀಫ್ ನೀಡಬಹುದು ಎಂದು ಹೆಸರು ಹೇಳಲು ಇಚ್ಚಿಸದ ವಕೀಲರೊಬ್ಬರು ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

2004 ರಲ್ಲಿ ಎಸ್ ಎಂ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಸಿಎಂ ಆಗಿದ್ದ ಅವಧಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅಕ್ರಮಸಕ್ರಮ ಯೋಜನೆ ಅನುಷ್ಠಾನಗೊಳಿಸಲು ಮುಂದಾದದರು. ಅಂದಿನಿಂದ ಇಂದಿನಿವರೆಗೆ, ಅಂದರೆ, ಎಚ್.ಡಿ ಕುಮಾರಸ್ವಾಮಿ, ಬಿಎಸ್ ಯಡಿಯೂರಪ್ಪ, ಡಿವಿ ಸದಾನಂದಗೌಡ ಹಾಗೂ ಜಗದೀಶ್ ಶೆಟ್ಟರ್ ಮತ್ತು ಸಿದ್ದರಾಮಯ್ಯ ಅವರ ವರೆಗೊ ಹಲವು ಕಾನೂನಾತ್ಮಕ ಸಮಸ್ಯೆಗಳು ಎದುರಾಗುತ್ತಲೆ ಇವೆ.

 

MOBILE APPS AND CYBER CRIME –


DO NOT DOWNLOAD SUSPICIOUS OR SPURIOUS OR UNKNOWN SOURCE FREEWARE  MOBILE APPLICATIONS WITHOUT PROPER AND DILIGENT EXAMINATION – A NEWS REPORT

MOBILE DATA,  PHOTOS,  PERSONAL DETAILS CAN BE HACKED THROUGH MOBILE APPLICATIONS.

WATCH OUT AND BE CAREFUL BEFORE DOWNLOADING THE APPS

It has come to light that pirated phone applications are now being used to hack into personal details, including photographs and bank credentials, of mobile phone users. With the help of malware implanted in them, hackers are accessing mobile wallets and banking applications on people’s mobile phones.

This has become a cause for concern as online transactions have increased in the wake of demonetisation, and the number of such malware entering mobile phones are also on the rise, experts have said.

The victims are also led to malware implanting websites through links sent through WhatsApp messages.

Pavan Duggal, Supreme Court advocate specialising in cyber law, said that the number of cases pertaining to mobile wallets being comprised in Bengaluru itself has gone up. “In the wake of demonetisation, breaches in cyber security have increased,” he said.

How it works

Mobile users should be aware that the malware, including ransomware, keylogger and coat-trailing trojans, can be transmitted through the applications. “These malwares infiltrate the mobile phones and computers too,” said N. Vijayshankar, cyber security expert. They point out that there are three methods in which a phone or laptop can get compromised by a malware – via an application-led attack, through browsers or through Internet networks like free Wi-Fi.

“Once a malware such as ransomware is implanted in the phone, it either locks the phone or encrypts the data. Important data like photos, bank details and other information can be stolen,” said Kapil Awasthi, security evangelist, Checkpoint, India, a cyber-security company.

With the increase in digital payment mechanisms, ransomware operators can be expected to launch more attacks. “Earlier, laptops used to be the targets for malware. Now, even mobile phones are targets. In the last eight months, we have seen desktops, which are behind layers of security in an organisation, also being attacked by ransomware,” he said.

Once locked or encrypted, the hackers demand a ransom. “Most often the payment has to be through bitcoins. However, the ransom is most often an amount that is affordable by the victim,” added Mr. Awasthi.

Meanwhile, the key logger malware captures the key strokes and in this manner steals the credentials. The accompanying trojan on the other hand enters a particular site, like that of a bank, when the victim logs in and then transfers the money into different accounts.

Laws needed

Mr. Duggal added that there is a need to have a proper legal framework to assist victims who lose money to cyber criminals. “There should be dedicated cyber security laws as India is already on the way to a cashless economy,” he said.

Do not download or load or save personal or other data in your mobile, it will lead to cybercrime.  Use the data and delete it.

Do not download suspicious apps.

Similarly, nearly Rs 80,000 crore of repayment of loans in cash above a certain threshold post demonetisation has also been shared with law enforcement agencies.

“The Income Tax department has undertaken numerous actions, both intrusive and non-intrusive, based on the intelligence and in turn referred a number of cases for parallel investigation by the ED and CBI. The actions have unearthed non-filers, huge amounts of unaccounted income and shell companies,” the official said without giving details.

The Income Tax department is also undertaking data analysis and comprehensive matching of the huge intelligence inputs with government databases to have a more effective and focused intrusive and non-intrusive actions in the coming days.
