Cyber Safety and Security in Hindi
Cyberbullying involves the use of electronic communication to bully a person, typically by sending messages of an intimidating or threatening nature and is a punishable offense under the Information Technology Act, 2000, and the Indian Penal Code. It also involves posting pictures or videos aimed at harassing another person. A whole gamut of social platforms, including chat rooms, blogs, and instant messaging are used in cyberbullying.
With COVID-19 closing schools across all states, Education Departments have made efforts to ensure continuity of learning through various digital platforms. Millions of learners are turning to online education and with this comes a huge increase in the use of electronic devices and Information and communication technologies (ICTs).

Online bullying often prevents teachers from imparting quality education through digital platforms and acts against the provision of safe, non-violent, and inclusive learning environments for all.
