37% rural youth sans Internet access: Study
This is one statistic Maharashtra, one of India’s most industrialised states and home to the country’s financial capital Mumbai, can’t be proud of. The western state has emerged as the top state in the country in terms of online fraud, government data show.
Maharashtra accounted for almost 46% cases of online fraud registered in the country between 2012 and 2014, according to latest data released last week by the home ministry in response to a parliamentary question. The state registered 708 cases in 2014 alone.
