The victims of cybersquatting can deal with it in the following ways:- Arbitration under ICANN’s rules, Trial in a State or Federal court. For a fast track form of resolution, a case could be filed with the registry handled by National Internet Exchange of India (NiXI). In India, the Information Technology Act, 2000 contains no provisions to punish cyber-squatters nor does it provide for any legal compensation but, the registry has taken steps to provide compensation to the victims.

Still not clear with the information you can consult our IPR law experts in India they can help in your case.
