Over the years, security agencies across the country have felt the need for a long term and focused approach in developing technology to meet the country’s internal security challenges- specially to address the requirements of state and central police forces and agencies involved in public safety and disaster management.
Internal security has distinct requirements in terms of complexities and challenges as the threats arise on account of various factors such as social structures and inherent inequities; therefore, a different approach would be essential. NCETIS is expected to address this national requirement.

National Center of Excellence in Technology for Internal Security (NCETIS) at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay has been set up under Government of India's flagship Digital India program. It is targeted towards developing indigenous technology and self-sufficiency in the broad areas of Electronics System Design Manufacturing (ESDM) in the strategic sector of internal security.

  • Develop indigenous, state of the art, self-sufficient technology solutions to address internal security challenges faced by Indian security forces and law enforcement agencies.
