The National Investigation Agency is the Central Counter-Terrorism Investigation agency which came into the existence on 31st December, 2008 in pursuance to enactment of the NIA Act, 2008, on 31.12.2008, with a mandate to investigate serious offences related to terrorist activities affecting the sovereignty, security and integrity of the Country.
The National Investigation Agency's crackdown on flow of funds from the "neighbouring country" to finance unrest in Kashmir has dealt a blow to the morale of terror and separatist groups, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said here Tuesday. Mr Singh claimed that due to the sustained efforts of the security forces, at least five-six militants were being eliminated in the Valley every day.
Stating that terrorism, including Naxalite activities, has became one of biggest challenges that the country has been facing, the Home Minister added, "Prime Minister Naranedra Modi has emerged as a strong voice against terrorism at the worldwide level".
"People have now started believing that India will be among top three economies of world by 2030, said an optimistic HM Rajnath Singh in Chennai, adding "Our economy, standing at $ 2 trillion today, will likely be at $ 5 trillion by 2030", he said". In 95 per cent of its cases, the accused get conviction, he said.
