|India may replicate select post-9/11 US anti-terror strategies|
Insisting that the Government is much more prepared now for handling terror strikes than three months ago, he told Rajya Sabha that there will be better coordination between various security and spy agencies from next month when the multi-agency centre will be in place.
"Our level of preparedness is much higher than it was three months back and in the event of any attack, our response will be swift and deterring," he said responding to members’ concern on internal security during the Question Hour.
Chidamabarm said that he would be presenting his third report on the level of preparedness on February 27.
"A team had gone to the US to study their anti-terror strategies, which they had prepared in the wake of 9/11 attacks. The team has come back and we are trying to replicate the strategies studied there, that suit our requirements," he said.
"By March 31, there will be better coordination between multi-agency centre (MAC) and its subsidiaries and between MAC and special branch of police and various data centres".
By May this year, all these agencies will be much better placed to reply to any kind of terror attacks, the Home Minister said. PTI
