Abstract
Cyber bullying, or the act of using the internet to degrade, belittle, or harass another person, is becoming increasingly common. It is done by harassing or threatening a person's reputation and privacy, leaving a long-lasting traumatic impact on that individual. Cyberbullying is defined as harassing, defaming, or intimidating someone over the internet, generally using mobile phones or computers, on social media, online chat groups, or any other online platform. This generally happens in schools and colleges in person, where the bully physically harms the victim. It could also be used to describe maliciously ruining someone's reputation on purpose. Both traditional bullying and cyberbullying have a painful impact on the victim, and it is very challenging for them to recover. As everyone in India has constant access to the internet, cyberbullying is on the rise, and perpetrators often do so without considering the impact of their actions on the target's life. Depending on the severity of the bullying and the potential outcomes of cyberbullying, coping with it can be challenging. Any person in India may now very easily commit a cybercrime including exchange extortion, cyberbullying, phishing, parodying, cyber stalking, etc. As it can happen whenever, wherever, and however often it wants, unlike conventional bullying, cyberbullying is extremely troublesome. This paper attempts to critically analyze the laws relating to cyber bullying and their strictness towards the same in a global perspective
