In India, the judicial system serves as a watchdog over the administration of justice and plays a critical part in reducing the number of cybercrimes committed against women. This is accomplished through offering legal remedies, establishing precedents, and ensuring that laws are carried out in an efficient manner. In order to combat online violence against women, the Supreme Court offers its authoritative interpretation of constitutional requirements and the legislation that are now on the books. It provides an interpretation of applicable laws, explains their scope and application, and ensures that such laws are effectively implemented in order to safeguard women’s legal rights. The Supreme Court is responsible for establishing precedents in the legal system through its decisions, which are then used as a basis for other courts’ and other government bodies’ decisions. These precedents set legal criteria, definitions, and remedies for cybercrimes committed against women, thereby establishing consistency in the manner in which these offences are addressed. It takes an active role in the analysis and development of legal frameworks, working to ensure that these frameworks are both comprehensive and able to adapt to the ever-changing nature of cybercrime.
