Creating and transmitting child pornography was punishable under the previous law. The amendment added a new clause, which makes browsing, downloading and viewing such materials punishable under the law.
People, who are booked under the new Act, may receive a jail term of five years or a fine of Rs. 10 lakh. The bill is now awaiting the Presidential assent.
