Abstract: E-banking is the delivery of banking services through electronic communication. It uses technological methods to provide financial services to consumers. During the course of the paper, the authors seek to explore the legal framework which governs e-banking in India. The present paper has been divided into two parts. The first part of the paper deals specifically with e-banking and the associated concerns. In the second part of the paper, the authors have analysed the landmark judgement delivered in R v. Thompson [79 Cr App R 191] and have commented on its significance keeping in mind the Indian context.
