    NATGRID, the ambitious counter- terror mechanism envisaged post 26/11, has discretely begun churning out vital information for Indian security agencies

    NATGRID, the ambitious counter- terror mechanism envisaged post 26/11, has discretely begun churning out vital information for Indian security agencies even as high-level security arrangements have been put in place to aggressively guard the system against any breach in its platform.

    National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) CEO Raghu Raman, who has been leading the creation of the ambitious department under the Union Home Ministry, said 21 data sources of various intelligence and enforcement agencies have been brought on board to put together a better picture of an incident which could be used not only to counter an impending threat but also trail suspects.

    "In many ways it (NATGRID) has started.There are certain elements being helped out where it is required," Raman told PTI when asked if the grid has begun doing its job and dishing out logical clues to law enforcement agencies in the country.

    The CEO, who was picked up for the creation of this ambitious project after his stint in the private sector Mahindra group, says NATGRID "has been delayed" in some senses "to make sure that the security protocols of the data sources it is using are very strong."

    "The security (of NATGRID) has been kept at the highest level.As a matter of fact, I can technology-wise guarantee you that the way NATGRID will protect data will be far higher than the protection given to the data in its original location.

    Security is definitely at a much higher grade than the original place where the data is," Raman said dismissing concerns over sanctity of the classified and personal user data it will access to discharge its task.

    Raman clarified that the NATGRID is not using databases but 21 data sources.

    "NATGRID is a tool in background.It is assisting agencies. It is only a pointer, like a compass.It is like Google. When you search for anything on Google it points you to go here and go there..likewise it (NATGRID) enables an officer to very quickly get a 360-degree view of a situation...," Raman explained.

    "There will be elements of certain user agencies (in NATGRID) who have access to that data.Those user agencies, by virtue of their presence in NATGRID, will have the capability to source the information," he said.

    I think that GOI should direct all hotels to register their guests online, with ID cards or passport scan on it, along with option of taking snaps at the reception. This way they will get more data. Already hotels have put in video cameras at reception and entrances.

    The CEO of a government's ambitious project, which will be the single point source of all data gathered by more than a dozen agencies, draws a salary of Rs 10 lakh per month besides other entitlements of top officers.

    Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh told Rajya Sabha that the monthly consolidated remuneration of CEO of NATGRID Raghu Raman is Rs 10 lakh besides a host of other facilities.

    Giving details of the Raman's package, Singh said in a written reply that the CEO is given a car as per the highest entitlement for officers in Government of India.

    The CEO is given travel, accommodation and TA/DA as per the highest entitled class for officers in the government and medical policy for self and family whose annual premium is capped at Rs 15,000.

    "(He is) entitled to deliver lectures not pertaining to his official domain and receive remuneration for the same.

    With prior approval of competent authority (Union Home Secretary), he can be a member of Corporate Boards which are not in conflict with his official position," he said.

    To deal with functional requirements, CEO NATGRID is also provided with a BlackBerry phone with actual connectivity charges (capped at Rs 8,000 per month). The CEO will be given a laptop with aircard (capped at Rs 1.25 lakh) and Rs 2,000 per month as internet charges.

    Raman was appointed as CEO on December 1, 2009, on a contractual basis. The contract was extended on June 1, 2011 for three years. He is a retired military officer who was working as CEO of Mahindra Defence Land System and his appointment and salary were approved by the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet headed by the Prime Minister.
