Recently police authorities with knowledge in the field of software technology conducted a crackdown process on more than 20 bank accounts which have been frozen by the Information Technology Cell Authorities in the country for actions of monetary embezzlement and frauds. It has been reported that people have been compelled to pay amounts ranging between 150-500 through the means of online UPI payment on the bank accounts of such fraudsters and then have not received the designated goods and service.

Actions are being initiated to improve the network security layer so that no one can enter into the system without proper authentication certificates.
