  • The department has notified the Cyber Café Rules (2009) which aims to regulate, govern and control the use of the Cyber Café centers in the State.

  • The rules impose a social responsibility on Cyber Café owners and authorizes them to keep a record of the usage of the cyber café in a log book. Users are required to show a proof of identity before they can use the facility in the cyber café. Further it empowers the Cyber Cell of the Crime Branch to inspect the Cyber Cafes and ensure that they are complying with the provisions of these rules.

  • Recently a team from Cyber Cell, Crime Branch visited all the cyber cafes in Gangtok to ensure the compliance of the rules. These measures it is hoped will go a long way in preventing the use of Cyber cafes by unsocial and anti-national elements.
