A General Introduction
In the recent ten years, as the overall development of India relies much more on information and communication technology than before, India government has introduced a series of policies to promote the development of ICT. As ICT is playing a more and more important role in India, a systematic and efficient legal system is necessary for the future development of India's ICT.
On the Internet, there is an article, named "ICT Strategy in India: The Need of Rejuvenation". This article is trying to analyse the weaknesses of Indian ICT strategy and policies and the possible arenas and segments that may be included into it to make it a globally competitive and efficient utility."

(c) Lack of gender sensitive policy,
(d) Lack of security and technological safeguards,
(e) Lack of a techno-legal base in India,
(f) Absence of ICT use for justice administration,etc.
Afterreading this article, I become aware of the fact that India's ICT faces some problems caused by its present ICT policies and the deficient and defective legal system. But India also has already started to solve the problems. Now, I become interested in two aspects:
After reading these two typical aspects respectively, you may have a deeper understanding of the present state of the India's ICT policies and laws.
