Union Home Minister chairs Consultative Committee Meeting of MHA

June 2017

New Delhi. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh chaired the Consultative Committee meeting of Members of Parliament attached to the Ministry of Home Affairs in New Delhi June 15.

Mr Singh informed the members that this is for the first time that suggestions of the Consultative Committee are being obtained on the restructuring and reorganizing of the Ministry of Home Affairs. He mentioned that while some changes have taken place in the structure and processes of the Ministry during the last 70 years, there is still a need to start a larger discussion, and generate new ideas for reorganising the MHA in a manner that it can meet the rapidly changing security environment and emerging threats such as cyber crime. It is a beginning and if necessary further discussion will take place.

During the meeting, the members were informed regarding the existing work load, the requirement for long term planning to deal with issues such as terrorism and narcotics. The need for police reforms, cyber security, porous borders, revisiting of various laws was also highlighted.

The Home Minister asked the members to give their suggestions on the subject. The members thanked the Union Home Minister for taking up this step as such subjects were never discussed earlier in the Consultative Committee Meetings. The Members stated that they will provide more inputs in due course and if needed, the subject may be discussed in subsequent meetings of the Committee.

Mr Singh informed the members that their valuable suggestions have been noted by the Ministry and will be examined. He also mentioned that there should be a committee of professionals for thorough study of the subject. He thanked the members for their valuable suggestions.
