The Indian Economy stands on agriculture, banking, finance, manufacturing sector, business sector, etc. The e-governance in these sectors has gained new heights even in the pandemic. The constant threats and issues related to cyber security have plagued the system at every level, especially fraudulent E-contracts. Even the Reserve Bank of India has acknowledged the uncertainties regarding Cyber Securities for example Vishing, via Phishing, Remote Access, etc. This research attempts to study to prohibit fraud applications and loss of money by individuals and organizations by elucidating a toll-free model which can detect fraud exposure while entering into E-contracts for example Fraudulent Recruitment E- contracts. The aim of the research is to provide a major contribution represented in a reliable detection model using firewalls, e-contracts, legal awareness, and others. The detection of Online Recruitment Fraud is characterized by QR codes, OTP, tele verifications, and other studies on this concept. The researcher proposed the detection model to achieve the basics of cyber security. Furthermore, this study focuses on context formation agreed by the parties i.e. a valid offer and due acceptance with the line to e-contracts, however, the contracts should not be denied on any ground as data messages are used for the purpose according to Provision Sec 10A of IT Act 2000. Through this paper researcher will bring provisions of formation of the contract, quality communication, the validity of e-contract in light of the legal framework of Information Technology Act 2000 along with electronic communications, electronic media.
