Jurisprudence of Anti-Terrorism Laws- An Indian Perspective
Ramanand Garge

Counter-terrorism practices cannot be effective in the absence of firm and clear anti-terrorism law. In the last several decades, India has developed wide-ranging counter-terrorism practices and mechanism. Yet, it has neither a comprehensive anti-terrorism law nor a definition of terrorism. Plethora of separate legislations are being used in counter-terrorism practices. The concept of federal crime is also missing. The National Investigation Agency (NIA) set-up in 2008 to investigate into terrorism cases. Increasingly its remit is being diluted as it is being burdened with investigation of other crimes. The efforts to set-up a National Counter-Terrorism Coordination Centre (NCTC) has also not succeeded due to apprehensions of the Indian states.
