The home security of a modern India is no longer the responsibility of the local government but the responsibility not only of the authorities but also of the owners and their employees.
A recent report by a consortium of national and international agencies that looked at how the Indian government deals with home security and other security matters has highlighted the need for the states to adopt a more proactive approach.
The report, which was presented at a recent meeting of the International Association of Security Officers and Home Security, called for the introduction of a proactive and holistic approach to home security.
The consortium has also recommended a number of proactive measures, including a move towards a digital security policy and more effective reporting mechanisms to ensure the implementation of such policies.
“It’s time for states to step up their proactive approach towards the home security situation, with the expectation that they will be more proactive,” said a senior official involved in the report.
A holistic approach that looks at all aspects of the home environment including its physical and digital security and monitoring, coupled with proactive measures that ensure that security is always taken seriously by both the government and the private sector, will ensure that the home and personal security of all Indians is always in good hands,” he added.”
But the proactive approach is still not a panacea and states will still have to invest in better technology and better monitoring to ensure that their policies are implemented.”

While the report recommends proactive measures for all the stakeholders including the police, the National Electronic Data Management Authority (NEADA), the Home Ministry, the Directorate of Home Security (DHS), the State Governments’ Secretariat, the Central Government, the state police, private security companies, banks and other stakeholders, there is a certain emphasis on the state level.”
The states have to ensure their implementation of proactive steps to ensure they are in a position to meet the security needs of the people of India,” said Nitesh Nandgaonkar, president of the All India Home Security Association (AIMSA).
Nandgaonskar said it was essential that the government was taking proactive measures against home security vulnerabilities, but also in ensuring that the states do not become complacent.”
Home security is a major security issue for the entire country.
There are many different kinds of security threats, which are evolving.
There is a lot of data that needs to be shared.
This has to be done well, to ensure there is no lull in the security situation,” he said.
If there is an issue of home security in a given state, the government has to step in and ensure the security of the entire state. “
It is not just about monitoring, but monitoring and tracking of people who have the ability to get access to sensitive data,” Nandgar said.
“If there is an issue of home security in a given state, the government has to step in and ensure the security of the entire state.
The government has the responsibility to protect all citizens, especially in times of crisis, when there is the possibility of an attack,” he pointed out.
According to Nandkaonkar , a proactive approach for home security is crucial to ensuring the security and safety of all citizens of the country.
“This is not a one-size-fits-all approach, which requires state governments to take action at the state and municipal level,” he explained.
“There are various steps the state has to take to ensure security of its citizens.
We have to create a holistic security plan and put a proper plan in place.”
