    Published on June 27, 2019

    “National security and modernization of armed forces has been a top priority for the new government. We are expecting our country a 5 Trillion $ economy in coming years, so the burden of public security and assets is going to be a herculean task. In this scenario an exemplary budget allocation  for advance technologies and solutions, impeccable infrastructure and modern equipment’s to ensure a supportive environment for homeland security, smart policing and modernization of police, protection, training and rescue is very crucial. In the interim budget for the first time, budgetary provisions for the Home Ministry crossed the Rs 1-lakh crore mark with special emphasis on improving border infrastructure and police modernization. We expect increased budgetary allocation for security, protection and rescue expenditure by Government of India. This will also boost the domestic manufacturing and help India in leading the world as one of the biggest business destination for equipment’s, arms and other allied technologies and manufacturing industries. The central and state governments have already identified modernization and up gradation of internal security as one of the key focus area besides creating a supporting infrastructure on a long term basis.”- Mr. VK Bansal, Organiser, International Police Expo
