The DGP/IGP Conference, chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, will focus on key aspects of internal security, such as crypto-drugs, a network of Chinese loan apps, rouge drones, and the link between gangsters, terrorists, and local criminals. The conference dates, which will take place in December, have yet to be determined.
The draught agenda was prepared by the Intelligence Bureau (IB), which is in charge of organising India’s largest security conference. The conference is significant because it includes discussions and sessions on specific topics that outline tasks for all investigative agencies for the coming year.
The prime minister leads the conference each year and attends all sessions. All heads and top officials from security agencies, forces, intelligence, and police attend the conference.
The top discussion points, according to the draught agenda, will be “Virtual reality in law enforcement; Nexus of terrorists-gangsters-criminals; Curtailing gangster activities in jails; Instant loan application: The transnational (Chinese) network; Darknet-crypto; and Drug trafficking, Interdiction strategies.”
“As per the vision of the prime minister, since 2014, the annual conferences, which used to be customarily organised in Delhi, have been organised outside Delhi with an exception of 2020 when the conference was held virtually. The conference has been organised at Guwahati in 2014; Dhordo, Rann of Kutch, in 2015; National Police Academy, Hyderabad, in 2016; BSF Academy, Tekanpur in 2017; Kevadiya in 2018; and IISER Pune in 2019,” the press release stated.
