Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 23 (UNI) Union Minister for Communication and Information Technology A Raja today said evidence gathered using various cyber forensics tools would soon be considered as 'evidence' in courts against cyber crimes.

He was speaking at a function organised here in connection with Resource Centre for Cyber Forensics (RCCF) at the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC).

The C-DAC is instrumental in developing a number of cyber forensics tools.

The minister said at present the evidence gathered using cyber forensics tools were not considered as evidence in court. The proposed amendments in the IT Act would be introduced in the next session of Parliament, he added.

He commissioned the satellite network on Special Schools Training for mentally challenged students and a mobile tele-medicine van.

The OncoNet-Tamil Nadu Tele-Medicine Project and other technologies developed by C-DAC were demonstrated to the minister on the occasion.
