The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), under the National e-Governance Division (NeGD), has an online post-graduation diploma in cyber law, crime investigation, and digital forensics. The 9-month programme will be conducted in collaboration with a consortium of the National Law Institute University (NLIU) in Bhopal.

At an inauguration event for the diploma, the CEO of NeGD, Abhishek Singh, outlined the objectives of the programme, which includes equipping police officers, state cyber cells, law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and judicial officers with the latest digital forensics skills to handle cybercrime investigations in compliance with Indian laws.

The programme will include over a hundred hours of immersive and self-paced e-learning content. Enrolled trainees will undergo training at a state-of-the-art cyber forensics lab established at NLU Delhi for “continuous training in a hybrid mode”, the press release stated. The programme facilitates continuous, systematic learning in a blended format and there will be learner-learner and learner-expert interaction.

Singh also provided details regarding batch two participants. For this batch, NeGD has received more than 1,600 nominations from judiciary and defence personnel as well as various government departments including the Indian Administrative Services (IAS), the Indian Police Service (IPS), and the Ministry of Finance, among others.

The Vice Chancellor of the NLU Bhopal emphasised the need to establish a research centre to promote multidisciplinary research and to expand the programme to benefit people residing in remote areas.  At the event, the Director General of Police, Goa apprised the participants about the growing number of cybercrime cases in the country and why diplomas like these are required to develop the requisite technical skills of government officers that deal with cybercrimes.

The Union Minister for Electronics and Information Technology, Ashwini Vaishnaw, inaugurated the second batch of the diploma, and digitally distribute certificates to the 258 qualified participants of batch one. He said that programme was a part of the Prime Minister’s Mission Karmayogi, which seeks to bolster the competency-based capacity building of government officers. He also suggested that ten more similar institutes be set up across the country to train and equip officers with the requisite skills needed to deal with cybercrime.

Upskilling officials in digital technologies has been a top priority for the government over the past two years. In July, the Department of Posts launched an e-learning portal to enhance the competencies of about 400,000 rural postal service and departmental employees.

The portal provided employees access to standardised training content online or in a blended campus mode. This will enable them to effectively deliver several government-to-citizen (G2C) services for enhanced customer satisfaction, as OpenGov Asia reported. The training videos and quizzes on the portal are available in 12 Indian languages.

Like the diploma in cyber law, crime investigation, and digital forensics, the portal was developed in-house under Mission Karmayogi. After completing the final summative assessment, a system-generated course completion certificate will be sent to the trainee’s registered email ID automatically. Trainees can also submit feedback, ratings, and suggestions for all learning content.
