Amended IT Act, 2008

January 21, 2010 3 comments

Friends.. There might be a sure shot question in the forthcoming exam…

The Information Technology Act 2000 is covered under Chapter 14 of Paper 6: MICS ( Final Old ) and Chapter 10 of Paper 6: Information Systems

This act was amended in the Year 2009. And keeping in mind the institute’s eternal inclination towards all the recent amendments I would say that we all should go through amendments made in the Act (since the changes are of significant importance too!).

I found a file over the internet in which all the amendments in the IT Act 2000 are highlighted specially.
