“In India, about 134 million children have access to mobile phones. While this provides opportunities for accessing useful material for learning purposes, lack of digital literacy and online safety measures expose children to hazards of cyber crime,” the statement said.

It informed that the ‘POCSO e-box’ is an easy and direct medium for reporting of child sexual abuse under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, 2012.

The platform was launched by Women and Child Development Maneka Gandhi in 2016. (IANS)
