Parliamentary Oversight Of Intelligence Agencies Of India Is Needed

In this exclusive guest column, Praveen Dalal, Managing Partner of India’s exclusive techno legal ICT Law Firm Perry4Law and CEO of Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB), has shared his viewpoints about the growing needs of parliamentary oversight of intelligence agencies and law enforcement agencies of India.

Indian Government is too reluctant to ensure Parliamentary Oversight for Intelligence Agencies and Law Enforcement Agencies of India. If this is not enough, Indian Government has been launching new Projects having serious “Constitutional Ramifications” and “Civil Liberties Violation” effects.

For instance, the National Counter Terrorism Centre (NCTC) Project of India, National Intelligence Grid (Natgrid) Project of India, Aadhar Project of India, Crime and Criminal Tracking Network and System (CCTNS), etc are not governed by any Legal Framework and Parliamentary Oversight. Indian Government is not willing to understand and accept that Intelligence Work is not an excuse for Non Accountability.

For some strange reasons Intelligence Infrastructure of India has become synonymous for Non Accountability and Mess. There is neither any Parliamentary Oversight nor and Transparency and Accountability of the working of Intelligence Agencies of India.
