True translation of the speech of Shri Hansraj Ahir, Hon'ble MOS (Home)

Prime Point Foundation and its associate concern Digital Security Association of India are organising a very useful programme on digital security.  I am glad that I have been invited to address the participants in this event, in Chennai.  Since I am now pre-occupied with another important assignment here, I am not able to come there for your programme.   I thank prime Point Foundation Srinivasan and Shri V Rajendran, for inviting me for this event.  I am sure that this is a very useful workshop and will be well received, especially from the perspective of public awareness in the area of cyber crimes and cyber security. 

Government of India under the leadership of Prime Minister is taking lots of initiatives and is launching with great hopes, the modernisation of various aspects of governance through digital India and other such projects.  On behalf of the Home Ministry, I am happy to state that a total of Rs.10,000 crores are being allocated especially on modernisation  for  the police force itself, on efforts like skill enhancement, training and other such related activities.  Unfortunately, cyber crimes are increasing every day since the usage of Internet is increasingly rapidly.  Reducing cyber crimes and making the police well trained and highly knowledgeable in these areas, is our objective. Hence with such initiatives like modernisation and education in the area of cyber crimes and security, the entire police force would be well equipped to tackle cyber crimes in future.   Through such programmes you are helping the police and security forces and thus helping the government in its efforts and thus enhancing the security of the nation.

I congratulate the organisers for this great initiative of creating awareness, which is a main agenda of the government.  You have taken a good initiative at a most appropriate time.  This Digital Security of Association is being launched in Chennai and I urge upon you to spread the awareness initiatives throughout India in future, carrying the message among the public, increasing cyber education among the masses.  I convey my best wishes to Shri Prime Point Srinivasan and Shri V Rajendran for launching this NGO and taking efforts in the right direction in the area of cyber security awareness.

 Jai Hind
