Abstract:
Cyberbullying is a form of bullying or harassment that occurs on electronic platforms, through electronic means. It includes harmful behavior such as posting rumors, threats, sexual remarks, personal and intimate information, hate speech, online trolling and cyberstalking, which can lead to increased levels of depression, anxiety, lower levels of self-esteem and increased suicidal tendencies among victims. This paper covers the various forms in which cyberbullying manifests itself in India, surveys the current policies and legislations about online harassment, provides ethnographic information about cyberbullying, and suggests areas of improvement in addressing the issue in India.
