For all the latest Sports News, At Bhagwan Das Marg,we arrive at a GDP figure for 2010-11. When the 1991 balance of payment crisis happenedDr Manmohan Singh as a finance minister was able to use that crisis to bring about structural reforms which fundamentally altered the course of Indian economy The series of terror attacks last year culminating in 26/11 Mumbai attacks did create a serious security crisis But have we used this crisis to bring about fundamental changes in the anti-terror legal framework and security infrastructure Did we waste 26/11 What critical lessons have we learnt after 26/11 Did we rectify the institutional failures exposed by 26/11 Are we confident that our security apparatus has improved after 26/11 Are we ready for the next round of terror attacks which are likely to be chemical or biological in nature After 9/11the United States government engaged in a serious public deliberation by establishing the Bipartisan Commissionconsisting of Repuplicans and Democratsto examine the causes of 9/11 and suggest action for the way forward The US government then went ahead to revamp the legal framework dealing with anti-terror and upgraded the security infrastructure India does not need to follow the same steps taken by the US governmentbut should certainly take steps to see how to prevent future terror attacks Post 26/11the Indian Parliament enacted the National Investigative Agency Actwhich created the National Investigative Agency (NIA) The stated objective of the NIA Act was to improve our anti-terror response and ensure that a future 26/11 attack does not occur again In principlethe concept of National Investigative Agency is a good step because state governments however aggressive are confined by territorial boundaries and do not have the required legal powers and security infrastructure to deal with globally coordinated terror attacks But a closer examination of the institutional design of the NIA reveals three fatal flawswhich precludes it from responding to global terror attacks Firstthe NIA is structured to deal only with the investigation of anti-terror offenses and not detection and prevention of anti-terror attacks Religion-based terrorism is not deterred by post-attack investigation and prosecutionhowever effectivesince the terror attack is the end objective for the terrorist Any anti-terror effort should focus more on gathering intelligence which could help in the prevention of anti-terror attack This is particularly so when the next round of terror attacks are likely to be chemical and biological Secondthe NIA is handicapped since it lacks the powers to take action on its own initiative There is a heavy bureaucracy in the investigation of offenses by NIA The jurisdiction of NIA is confined only to certain stipulated offenses in the NIA Act and even with respect to those offensesthe NIA cannot initiate the investigation The NIA Act mandates that any offense which has to be investigated by NIAthe local police officer should first submit the report to the state government and the state government should in turn submit that report to the Central governmentwho will then examine if the case should be referred to NIA Agility is a critical virtue while dealing with terror and unfortunately the NIA Act sacrifices it in favour of governmental approvals Thirdthe NIA Act does not address the crucial issue with respect to fighting global terror co-ordination among various governmental agencies and security agencies The perpetrators of terror have a synchronised approach while committing acts of terrorbut a democratic and a federal polity like India tends to have a compartmentalised and segregated approach to dealing with terror attacks Any effort to detectprevent and adequately respond to terror attacks requires co-ordination across multiple layers of government The NIA can be an effective anti-terror agency if it has powers to simultaneously take inputs from the local policemen on the road with the highest intelligence official operating out of the country; an agency which deals with an official in the finance ministry who is responsible for monitoring money laundering with a defence ministry official who is monitoring external attacks The NIA must be an agency which can synthesise intelligence from multiple sources into operational planning The crucial lesson which the US learnt from the 9/11 crisis was not to create agencybut rather ensure that there was unity of efforts among various agencies The Bipartisan Commission set up to investigate the 9/11 attacks found that one of the biggest impediment in the anti-terror attacks is that multiple security agencies simply dont talk to each other and critical intelligence information inevitably ends up falling in the gap The objective is not centralisationbut rather co-ordination For too longthe political discourse on terrorism has been confined to stringent criminal laws vis-à-vis civil liberties We need to go beyond this discourse The larger question which needs to be asked is how can we organise government differently to deal with future terror attacks The author is a practising lawyer For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNever let a serious crisis go to waste.
