    The Centre on Thursday approved Rs.1,100 crore for purchase of hi-tech equipment for the National Intelligence Grid, cleared by the Cabinet last year. The NATGRID will pool information from 21 categories of database including rail and air travel, income tax, bank account details, credit card transactions and visa and immigration records for ready access by intelligence agencies.


    CONSTANTLY EVOLVING

    The Cabinet Committee on Security, which met under the leadership of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, gave its nod for the NATGRID proposal for acquisition of technological items mentioned in the Detailed Project Report, Home Minister P. Chidambaram said. The NATGRID was conceptualised as a constantly evolving tool that would mature over several horizons with additional functionalities and enhancements over a period of time.

    The NATGRID was conceptualised after the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks to facilitate robust information sharing by security and law enforcement agencies. It will give 11 agencies — including the RAW, the IB, the ED, the National Investigation Agency, the CBI, the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence and the Narcotics Control Bureau — access to the combined data.

    NEW DELHI: Stepping up the move to strength security-related infrastructure in the country, the government on Thursday approved Rs 1,100 crore for purchase of sophisticated equipments to kick start the National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) and also extended by three years the duration of a project to set up a system to track crime and criminals across India.

    While the NATGRID is aimed at linking 21 categories of databases for ready access by intelligence and investigation agencies, the Crime and Criminal Tracking & (CCTNS) project is being implemented to connect about 15,000 police stations and over 5,000 higher police offices across the country to ensure smooth sharing of crime-related information among various law enforcement agencies. The Cabinet Committee on Security, at a meeting chaired by PM Manmohan Singh, gave its nod to the proposal of NATGRID for acquisition of certain technological items mentioned in the Detailed Project Report, home minister P Chidambaram told reporters.

    He said the proposal was for purchase of technological items for Horizon-I and some elements of Horizon-II of the NATGRID.

    The NATGRID is conceptualized as a constantly evolving tool that will mature over several horizons with additional functionalities and enhancements over a period of time. It will have access of database like railway and air travel, income tax, bank account details, credit card transactions, visa and immigration records.

    The project was conceived after the 26\11 Mumbai terror attack. Many feel that had NATGRID existed, the Lashkar-e-Taiba operative David Coleman Headley would not have had a free run before and after the 2008 strikes. The CCTNS project was planned before the Mumbai terror attack. It had, however, got the Cabinet's nod in June, 2009. The project was scheduled to end on March 31, 2012. He said the extension did not mean that the bulk of the project would not be completed before March, 2015.

    Will they get this amount every year? We need to increase their budget by many folds. 1100 cr is too less.
