In 2018, Parliament got the report from the railways saying that according to their request, the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology had blocked nearly 20 websites regarding misusing the automation software on www.irctc.co.in. The exact amount of these websites was 19.

The case is supposed to originate from when a staffer at the Central Bureau of Investigation or CBI for short had been arrested due to his partnership with travel agents to conduct an illegal e-ticket racket.

For further information, the culprit booked over one thousand tickets via only one portal at a time by an outlawed software. And that made all of the Indians shocked.

The new cybercrime cell is expected to tackle all issues relating to the cybercrime we have now faced. The rollout time of this cell has not been uncovered.
