Deputy Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Wednesday said that the Maharashtra government will launch its advanced cyber security platform to curb cyber crimes in next six months.

“Cyber crime is increasing every passing day and even surpassing street crime. Considering Maharashtra’s population and its financial clout, cyber crimes may increase in future as well. The state is presently developing a cyber security platform on which all social media handles, financial institutions, banks and NBFC will be brought together to reduce the response time after crime,” said Fadnavis, who also holds the Home portfolio. He was replying to the discussion on the law and order situation in the state.

“The money lost in these frauds move through over 10 accounts and disappear in foreign countries. This platform is to curb this and will be activated in the next six months. It will have the latest technology as well as experts in the field working on it. The presentation of it was made in the Home ministry’s conference a few months back and it was appreciated by all,” said Fadnavis. While replying to various issues raised related to the state’s law and order situation, Fadnavis claimed that no police recruitment will be held from private contractual sources.

“This government will be recruiting 18,000 police personnel. The Mumbai and Pune police have requested us that till the time this recruitment takes place, they be allowed to use the force from the Maharashtra State Security Corporation for 11 months,” he said, adding that no contractual recruitment in the police force will be undertaken. He said that the government has restructured police recruitment patterns for the first time since 1960, and the next recruitment will be based on the new requirements of the force.

Commenting on the issue of atrocities against women, Fadnavis said that it is a serious issue across the country. “It is alleged that Maharashtra is number three in terms of crime against women after Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. But crime cannot be presented like this. It should be calculated per lakh population. By this criteria, we are at number 12. In terms of crime against children, the state is at 17,” he said. Fadnavis said that the approval of Shakti Law for the safety of women is pending with the President’s office as it has sought opinions of different departments since it overlaps various other laws concerning different departments.

“In Maharashtra, the rate of solving the cases related to disappearance or kidnap of women was 87 per cent in 2021, 80 per cent in 2022 and 63 per cent till now in 2023. Around 60,000 to 64,000 cases of missing women are registered annually and interestingly it was the same even during the lockdown years. We are, however, not satisfied with the rate of solving such cases,” he added.
