The dark web has become a significant concern for authorities and law enforcement agencies in India. It is a hidden part of the internet that can only be accessed through specific software, and it offers a wide range of illegal goods and services to users who seek to remain anonymous. This makes it a haven for criminal activities such as drug and arms trafficking, child pornography, and cyber fraud.

Despite its growing presence in India, there still needs to be more stringent laws to control the use of the dark web and the sale of illegal goods and services. India has been slow to respond to this threat, and many believe that the current laws need to be revised and need to be updated tokeep up with the evolving nature of the dark web. Furthermore, even when laws do exist, the enforcement of these laws can be challenging, leading to a lack of deterrence for those who engage in illegal activities on the dark web.

To address these challenges, India needs to adopt a comprehensive legislative policy to track illegal activities on the dark web. This will involve more significant investment in law enforcement and the development of more robust Cyber security measures to protect individuals and businesses from online fraud and other types of criminal activities. Additionally, regulating access to the dark web in India may be necessary, which could involve banning VPN so creating a mandatory charge for VPN registration. Overall, it is clear that India urgently needs to take action to combat the legal complications posed by the dark web.
