Author(s): Dr. Swapnil Sudhir Bangali, Dr. Harita Swapnil Bangali
Abstract: The Information Technology Act, 2000 was passed with the intent to include electronic commerce into our legal framework. But, it also included certain allied subject matters such as creation of digital signature, civil wrongs and penalties in the form of contraventions and cybercrimes. The whole gamut of criminal law and compensation made most of the people think that Information Technology Act, 2000 is a technical piece of legislation and it will be applied separately and exclusively. In reality, it is not a carrying any “One Act Syndrome”.
