In the face of increasing online frauds leading to financial losses, Indian tech giants have decided to come together to address the issue and save customers from such cybercrimes. A TOI report, citing people aware of the development, said that the companies who have taken cognizance of the issue are MakeMyTrip, OYO, Paytm, Swiggy, Zomato, and Uber. Last week, the companies together met the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) representatives and made a joint representation on the issue. The presentation also addressed the plan on how to curb these online frauds, which are reportedly engineered via fake toll-free numbers and serial bank account generators. These companies also shared a database of about 4,000 SIM card numbers and 350-400 bank account numbers with the RBI, State Bank of India (SBI) and the telecom companies. The tech giants have also reached out to Google about how its search engine is used by cybercriminals to make their fake toll-free numbers appear on top of search results.

The Delhi State-Level Bankers' Committee (SLBC) has suggested keeping a window of 6-12 hours between cash withdrawals to prevent frauds, according to a report by The Times of India. "A lot of these frauds happen at night, from around midnight to early morning. A bar on transactions for a certain period can help," said Mukesh Kumar Jain, the CEO of Oriental Bank of Commerce and the Delhi SLBC convener, told the publication. One-time password (OTPs) for cash withdrawals, similar to the kind used for card transactions online, are also being considered, Jain told The Times of India. Another measure being evaluated is a centralized monitoring system with a two-way communications system, the report said.
