Industry should intensify research in security technology: Deputy NSAFebruary 4th, 2009 - 8:52 pm ICT by ANI
New Delhi, Feb 4 (ANI): Deputy National Security Advisor Shekhar Dutt today said that security is getting far more comprehensive connotation than purely a military or law and order construct, and added the civil society is conceiving itself as an equal and complementing matrix of national security.
Speaking at Technical Seminar on Internal Security organised by the CII, Dutt said Our policies and strategies need to prepare for the future and not merely address the present. From box-based planning, we need to orient to a transformational mode where activity lines and time lines are well defined.
For achieving a competent position globally, he mentioned that the industry should intensify research and development with regard to security technology.
Dutt urged for a better instrumentation of security environment, by linking the economy with science in a manner, which is structured and monitorable.
Internal security involves human beings who value their own freedom as much as they value the nations security. Therefore technology is definitely an important tool; though the essential driver remains the human mind, Dutt said.
India is witnessing a transition from a traditionally developing society to a modern state accentuated because of ongoing technological revolution. We are witnessing awakening of the dormant mass that wish to challenge the unity of elites at the top of the national pyramid, he added. (ANI)
