Amit Shah Highlights New Laws and Police Technology at IPS Passing Out Parade
Amit Shah, the Union Home Minister, highlighted the importance of introducing fresh laws and adopting advanced police technology in his speech at the graduation ceremony of the 75th batch of IPS probationers held at the Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVP NPA) in Hyderabad.
In his address, Amit Shah underscored the importance of implementing new laws, including the Bharatiya Nyaya Sanhita 2023, the Bharatiya Nagarik Suraksha Sanhita 2023, and the Bharatiya Sakshya Bill 2023. These new legislations are intended to replace the existing Indian Penal Code (IPC), Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC), and the Indian Evidence Act. The government is keen on introducing these Acts to enhance the policing system in the country.
Amit Shah highlighted the evolving challenges faced by law enforcement agencies, especially in combating cybercrime and terrorism. He stressed that technology would play a crucial role in addressing these challenges. The government is committed to countering terrorism activities and ensuring the safety and security of its citizens.
The Union Home Minister expressed his concern about various organized crimes, including cryptocurrency, fake currency, hawala transactions, inter-state offenders, and the trafficking of narcotic substances. These issues pose significant challenges, and the regular policing system must evolve to incorporate modern police technology to prevent such illegal activities in the country.
Amit Shah also discussed the promising future of India, envisioning the nation as a superpower in the next 25 years (Amrit Kaal). He emphasized that the police system would undergo significant changes during this period, with the introduction of new Acts, advanced technology, and enhanced policing methods to better serve the people of India.
Empowering women is a top priority for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government. Amit Shah praised Anushtha Kalia, an IPS probationer from the Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram and Union Territories cadre, for achieving the top position in a training session at the National Police Academy.
The passing out parade saw the participation of 175 IPS probationers from the 75th batch. Among them, 34 were women, and 155 were men, with an additional 20 probationers from foreign countries, including Nepal, Royal Bhutan, Maldives, and Mauritius. Anushtha Kalia was honored with the Sword of Honour by the Union Home Minister for her outstanding performance during her training at the police academy.
In addition to the passing out parade, Amit Shah inaugurated FitRise 75 at the academy’s stadium, designed for running practice. An impressive four lakh people, including NPA staff, registered as members to participate in the program. Probationers from the 74th batch of IPS also took part in the event.
Amit Shah’s speech highlighted the government’s commitment to modernizing India’s policing system and ensuring that it remains well-equipped to address emerging challenges, particularly in the areas of cybercrime and terrorism. The introduction of new laws and advanced technology is expected to play a crucial role in achieving these goals, ultimately enhancing the safety and security of the nation.
