New Delhi : The Delhi High Court has ruled that banks must diligently comply with information requests made by police cybercrime units.

In the course of handling cases concerning deceptive practices and fraudulent transactions, Justice Prathiba M. Singh ordered a number of banks to provide their protocols for responding to inquiries made by law enforcement.

Concerns have been voiced by Delhi Police regarding banks’ slow response times to inquiries intended to guarantee adherence to court or police orders.

The court also noted the difficulties posed by cases where the accused are located in different states, making it difficult for the Delhi Police’s Cyber Crime Cell to prosecute them, and asked the RBI to clarify if there are guidelines for banks regarding compliance with orders issued by police or courts.

Justice Singh instructed the Centre to call a meeting of all cybercrime cells, acknowledging the necessity for coordination amongst these units.

The court directed that the meeting take place by December 20 at the latest, and it scheduled the next hearing for February 1, 2024.
