Home Minister, Amit Shah inaugurates the National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) campus in Bengaluru. According to Home Minister Amit Shah, the Narendra Modi government has had a zero-tolerance attitude toward terrorism since the beginning. Mr Shah remarked during the inauguration of the National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) premises in Bengaluru that security requirements have increased dramatically in terms of data, scope, and complexity compared to past issues. According to him, legal and security authorities require automated, secure, and quick access to data gathered from credible sources.
- The government has tasked NATGRID with establishing and operating a cutting-edge and innovative information technology infrastructure for obtaining data from data collection agencies.
- The Union Government will soon build a national database to track hawala transactions, terrorist funding, counterfeit cash, narcotics, and bomb threats, illicit arms smuggling, and other terrorist operations.
- The Home Minister stated that intelligence and legal agencies should now be able to fully utilise information due to the removal of impediments to essential data.
- There should be a paradigm shift in the way agencies work thanks to data analytics and information technology.
- C-DAC is implementing NATGRID, according to Shah, in keeping with the Prime Minister’s vision of a self-sufficient India.
