universal objects of mockery; it’s time to come up with a new cliché for autumn. or a helmet-to-helmet football collision, India is yet to devise an institutionalised mechanism to counter it.As India does not have a single unified authority that could coordinate the operations of various intelligence and counter-terror agencies for ensuring a quick response in times of crisis like the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs has recently recommended that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) “should immediately revive the idea of the NCTC as a single unified counter-terrorism agency and re-issue the notification laying down the power functions and duties of NCTC” The 2008 Mumbai terror attacks had jolted the Indian state in the same way the Americans were shaken to the core by 9/11 attacks The intelligence failure coupled with the poor response forced the central government to effect a thorough transformation of India’s internal security architecture Besides creating the National Investigation Agency (NIA) and the National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) the government had also announced an ambitious plan to create a single overarching body — the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) — for counter-terrorism purposes The Multi-Agency Centre (MAC) an intelligence-sharing ‘fusion centre’ functioning under the Intelligence Bureau (IB) was to be subsumed under it The NCTC was supposed to come into being in 2012 But its non-establishment has been the single biggest disappointment of the post-26/11 internal security reform process In India the issue of response funding and information sharing that deals with terrorism are all connected with that of federalism Indian Constitution largely distinguishes the Indian model of federalism from the one followed in the United States Indian federalism is related more to the distribution of power between the central and the states governments than about limiting the power of the government As per India’s Constitution ‘public order’ and ‘police’ are in the statelist which is the sole preserve of a state government However the Constitution has also vested the central government with some emergency powers and the power to encroach upon many issues listed in the state list Hence the central government has raised some Central Paramilitary Forces — the Central Research Police Force (CRPF) Border Security Force (BSF) Assam Rifles Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) Seema Suraksha Bal (SSB) and the National Security Guard (NSG) — which perform a wide range of duties including management of law and order counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency across India At the same time it would be incorrect to assert the preponderance of centralisation in India’s federal system since the practice of politics in India vastly differs from the constitutional prescriptions The states if governed by the Opposition party vociferously defend their autonomy Moreover the very nature of India’s administrative architecture makes it imperative on the central government to depend heavily on the state governments for the implementation of its several policies and agendas The NCTC also became an unavoidable victim of the politics of federalism during the previous UPA regime Many non-Congress ruling states at the time did not approve of the proposal to establish the NCTC Their major Opposition stemmed fromthe potential violation of the principle of federalism as they expressed deep apprehensions of the investigative and operational powers of the NCTC which was authorised to arrest any suspect and to carry out operations without prior approval from and knowledge of the respective states Narendra Modi as the then chief minister of Gujarat was also opposed to the NCTC alleging that such a structure would interfere with the functioning of state security agencies As clearly seen the state governments in India enjoy far greater powers than those possessed by similar constituent units in other democratic countries A huge discretion of local police in handling security issues is not entirely unreasonable as states have to be policed on the basis of local norms But terrorist groups often take advantage of this fragmented system Thus inter-agency coordination is a serious challenge both at the centre and in the states The MAC and state MACs are required to ensure this coordination but there is an urgent need to do much better particularly on follow-up action on the shared intelligence India’s NCTC was modelled on the American institution of the same name Created after the reorganisation and restructuring of the intelligence community following the 9/11 attacks the American NCTC describes itself as “a center of gravity and leading voice that unifies counterterrorism intelligence for the homeland and abroad” and “integrate the national counterterrorism (CT) effort by fusing foreign and domestic CT information providing terrorism analysis sharing information with partners across the CT enterprise and driving whole-of-government action to secure our national CT objectives” The MHA’s desire to emulate the American NCTC was understandable But an important detail was ignored in the rush to create the NCTC The American NCTC is an integral part of its Directorate of National Intelligence (DNI) which is manned by officials from the Pentagon FBI CIA and other agencies who can also access its databases By analysing and collating terrorism-related information to support counterterrorism operations of various intelligence agencies that have ground-level source networks it actually duplicates their analysis and assessment functions But it is neither authorised to conduct intelligence operations on its own nor does it have the powers to investigate or arrest It cannot even order other intelligence agencies to follow-up on its assessments since its primary role is supportive in nature confined to advice and agenda-setting In India’s context the move to keep the NCTC under the control of Intelligence Bureau created another huge controversy The Intelligence Bureau is the nodal agency for counterterrorism and it makes sense to house the NCTC under it in the similar fashion the MAC was placed under the Intelligence Bureau But it is also an accepted principle in all liberal democratic countries that an intelligence agency should not possess police powers of arrest The Opposition parties were quick to express fears that if the NCTC was made part of the Intelligence Bureau the powers given to it under the anti-terror law — the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act — could be misused At present?
